Because students need to know how your professors are directed to deal with absences related to the swine flu epidemic on the horizon, I'm posting the official Baylor website. Faculty members are encouraged to make course materials available to students so that they don't have to come to class if they are ill. However, the mandatory attendance policy is not rescinded. That means that you need to be especially careful to attend all classes so that, if you do become ill, you have an emergency stash of unused absences. Wash your hands, don't hang out with people who have a temperature or other flu symptoms, get enough rest, eat nutritiously, and stay well. And just ask your parents if you don't believe me. (That last statement is a joke in case you missed my attempt at humor.)

I moved this feature up on the blog so that it's the first thing you see when you open the blog. Here is a place to ask technology questions such as "How do I add my syllabus to my blog?" Ask away if you have a question; if you have an answer, please jump in. This will be a great exercise in collegiality.
Do you ever find yourself up a tree when it comes to acing that important exam or nailing all the points on the research paper assignment? If so, this blog may be for you. It's a place to explore learning strategies, best practices in picking the perfect professor, and ways to play the academic game so that you end up scoring a university degree.
