Thoughts on session date changes?

I sent a message to you all yesterday about potential changes to our session dates. Feel free to share any thoughts, concerns, comments, suggestions, etc. here!

I have concerns about shifting the start day of any section to anything but Mondays - since students seem to expect week ending due dates to be on the weekend - specifically on Sundays.
While I can see the benefit of a midweek end date for exam purposes, I think using midweek deadlines for weekly assignments will be most confusing to both students and faculty. Using same date start dates for different sections will be even more confusing since that will mean different DAYS for each section as start, end and weekly deadlines.
