Exams and Make-up Lectures
For 2nd and 3rd year classes, all midterms will be held in (Monday, June 22 - Friday, June 26). For this week, core course lectures will be canceled. Make-up lectures are scheduled as shown in the appropriate Make-up Lecture schedule. This Make-Up Lecture schedule also shows dates for midterms and the final examination period, and any holidays during the term. All students should be aware that, even though final exams are scheduled to end on Friday, August 7 - Saturday, August 15, it is still possible that some exams may be postponed by such things as bad weather or emergency situations. Each student must be available for exams up to and including Saturday, Aug 15. Do not make plans (e.g. travel arrangements) for days prior to this date! Note also that no special allowances will be made for students who miss exams without a good reason (e.g. slept in or misread the schedule, are not good reasons)
Class Representatives and the Student /Faculty Committee
Each class must elect two student representatives to serve on the Student-Faculty Committee. This committee will meet several times throughout the term during your class seminar hour on Thursdays. There will be meetings with Prof. Kennings, Director and Liz Skibicki, your advisor along with meetings with your instructors on alternate weeks. As class reps you will serve as a liaison between the class and the department. Please choose your class representatives during the first week of term.
Class Reps: Please inform Liz Skibicki who your class representatives will be.
