And Make Time for Your Classes!

Don’t let a long weekend make you lose sight of classwork, and be sure to make time for homework and studying. Also, if you haven’t already, found some time this long weekend to closely review your syllabi. Remember, you’re responsible for knowing the information on your classes’ syllabi, for reviewing them on a regular basis and for noting any changes a professor makes to them.
