You should arrive on time and plan to stay for the entire class. If you come in late or must leave early, please sit in the back of the room by the door. Turn off your cell phones and pagers during class. I do not provide lecture notes to students so you are responsible for getting class notes from a classmate if you cannot attend. You are also responsible for the content of any videos, guest speakers or other material presented during class time. If you must miss class, it is your responsibility to find out from a classmate what you missed. If you experience an illness, accident, or other personal circumstances that prevents your attendance in class for an extended period of time, you should contact the office of Dr. Alan Campbell, the Office for Student Affairs in the Holmes/Hunter Academic Building. They will assist in contacting your professors on your behalf. Their phone number is (706) 542-3564, and their e-mail is www.uga.edu/studentaffairs. STUDENT EVALUATION
