Office Hour Sign Up

Featured

Office hours occur on M-Th. If you wish to see me during lunch, you must sign up. There are 2 time slots: 12:15-12:30 and 12:30-12:45. You must post before 11:00 a.m. for a same day visit. 

First post, first served. If you happen to sign up for a day and time that someone had previously reserved, you may still come in but will not be guaranteed face time. Sign up by commenting on this post. Make sure to leave your name, date and time you wish to come. Additional information as to the nature of the visit will help me prepare materials for you. Format your comment like this:
