Figure - Daily Schedule Figure 2 - Weekly Schedule Figure 3 - Monthly Schedule Recommendations for Incoming HA 165 Students, May 7, 2008 1 To: Next Year’s Incoming HA 165 Students From: Karli Miller-Hornick School of Hotel Administration 2011 Date: May 7, 2008 Subject: Recommendations for Incoming HA 165 Students After I survived a semester with Professor Snow, I would like to share my recommendations with you, next year's students, based on my experience in Managerial Communication (HA 165). For our final writing assignment, Professor Snow has asked me to make recommendations on how you can capture the most value from HA 165, as well as perform at least as well, if not better than students in subsequent semesters. I would like to provide you with creative solutions to difficult dilemmas and assignments that you may face in HA 165. Don’t be intimidated: You should not be intimidated by Professor Snow or the rigorous curriculum he teaches. Think of yourself as an ant, knowledge as your anthill, and Professor Snow as your architect. In order for you to avoid intimidation, you should remember that Professor Snow is not here to step on you; instead, he is here to help you build your anthill. In order for you to avoid intimidation, you must understand what Professor Snow promises to deliver in HA 165, and you must understand and commit to what he expects you to deliver in HA 165. Most importantly, to avoid intimidation, you must be prepared for class. Manage your time: In order for you to be successful in college, you must manage your time and break tasks into smaller manageable pieces. In order for you to be successful at time management, I would like to provide you with some tools such as iCal (a scheduling program on Macs) to schedule times to accomplish assignments, keep track of due dates, tutorial appointments, and Communication Center appointments. Use iCal to keep track of daily, weekly, and monthly assignments and appointments. Don’t be intimidated You should not be intimidated by rumors you may hear about Professor Snow or the rigorous curriculum he teaches. When you first get your schedule and see that you have Professor Snow for HA 165, you will probably think one of two things: 1. Who is this professor? 2. I need to get out of this course. If you do not already know Professor Snow, then you may not know that he has a reputation in the Hotel School as being one of the hardest professors; however, he also has the reputation of being one of the best professors. He is one of the best professors, because if you are willing to put in the effort, he is able to push your thinking and improve your writing skills.

Recommendations for Incoming HA 165 Students, May 7, 2008 2 When you get to class on the first day of school, you will find Professor Snow standing 6’5”. As a freshman standing 4’11”, I found myself quite intimidated merely by his size. Sitting in tutorial next to him, I felt like an ant, and I sometimes felt that if I misspoke or gave a wrong answer, he would crush me. However, if you remember a few key hints, you will understand that Professor Snow is not here to

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
