After I create the e-mail list from the University roster and you directly from Day 1, the ball’s in your court. If there are problems, then must tell me. The best way to do that is email me a note to [email protected] from your working email address. Exchanging names, emails, and phone# with other students is a good idea! Do that here: (1) Name_________________________________ email ______________________ ph ____________ (2) Name_________________________________ email ______________________ ph ____________ (3) Name_________________________________ email ______________________ ph ____________ (4) Name_________________________________ email ______________________ ph ____________ (5) Name___________________________________ email _______________________ ph_____________ (6) Name___________________________________ email _______________________ ph_____________ (7) Name___________________________________ email _______________________ ph_____________ (8) Name___________________________________ email _______________________ ph_____________
