AVISO: Unexcused Late Assignments and Extra Credit Papers receive no credit
Pleas for exceptions will fall on deaf ears

The details change from semester to semester, but the basic scheduling problems remain the same. . . . It's basically a boring read, but important none the same--especially if you're the procrastinating type. -- Tim Roufs
