Dear students,

Due to the snow storm I will need to revise the dates on the syllabus. It has also been brought to my attention that students have been unable to purchase the class packet because the machines at the Copy Center are down. Furthermore, many students have not posted a reply to the “test” question online. I assume it is due to technical difficulties.

The beginning of the semester can be a bit problematic, so don’t worry about the online postings for now. Your immediate action is to obtain the required texts and contact Queens College to help you with the online postings if you are having trouble.

We will address all of this next time we meet and for those of you who are ready to go, I am delighted!
