Please come to class prepared for the work to be done and in a positive frame of mind so that you are ready to learn. Please complete readings and other assignments on time. Please bring all necessary course materials such as paper, pencil, required books, handouts, and notes.
Please try to be pleasant and positive in your classroom behavior. Show respect for all class members. Address legitimate grievances appropriately, preferably outside of normal class time. If you have a problem with your instructor, please try to solve the problem with him or her before appealing to a higher authority.
When responding to classroom questions, please do not interrupt a fellow student or the instructor. Take your turn. When you respond to another student’s comment, please try to acknowledge the other’s position. When responding, please try your best to call other class members by name.
Please turn off all cell phones and pagers while in class. If you must be on call, set the device on vibrate and quietly leave the room before answering the call.
Please treat the furniture and equipment in the classrooms and computer labs as if they were your own. Throw any trash away on your way out.
Please remember that for the protection of our facilities and equipment, food and drinks are not allowed in the classrooms or labs. Under no condition is smoking or other tobacco use acceptable in the classroom.
Leave classrooms and labs as you find them, turning off equipment as necessary and pushing in chairs. Before leaving your computer, please log off the network. Also reset the printer so that the paper is wound back out of the platen and not left in the “tear off” position. If you have moved any equipment (keyboard, mouse, etc.), please put it back in its proper place before leaving the classroom. Also, please dispose of all discarded printer paper and torn-off perforated edges.
Most classes begin on time and end on time. If you need to know about schedule or assignment changes, please ask about them at the beginning of class. If you have a real need to leave early, please inform your instructor and leave quietly.
You will do better if you are interested in the class, and the best way to be interested is to get involved. Talk to your friends about the material, and look for current applications or examples about the course issues in newspapers or popular magazines and on the Web. If you can make connections between yourself and the course materials, you will be a happier and a better student.
