Office hours

I thought it might be useful for you guys to know when you can expect me to respond to your emails.

Let's start with Monday through Thursday. On those days, I'm in class, or otherwise occupied, all morning; and I don't get to my emails until afternoon. I try to have them read and answered by 3 PM. I will log on again around 8:00 PM.

On Fridays, I log on in the mid-to-late morning, and I will probably not log back on until Saturday.

I have scheduled most deadlines for midnight Saturday night, and I try to make myself available off and on throughout the day to deal with problems that might arise as students try to meet this deadline. Saturdays nights, though, I like to party with my friends; so don't expect me to get your late-night emails until Monday afternoon.

I take Sundays off. I won't get your Sunday emails until Monday afternoon.

I hope this helps. dld
