'Back to school' generally refers to grade school -- crayons and 'Trapper Keepers.' (anyone else here as old as I am?) The kiddies get out at the end of May or first week of June, and go back at the end of August or first of September. Colleges and universities are all over the place. My first year of college was at the U. of Minnesota, and they were on a trimester system.
