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:
Who is this professor?
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.
