Christine Chang

To the Class of 2015: a list of minor and not-so-minor regrets I have that I hope you won't. (It's really not that bad, and you'll survive perfectly well even if you completely ignore this list.) Love, Christine.

Prof. Steve Volk

So here's the deal. I'm looking for VOLUNTEERS. Students who would like to begin working on their own ePorfolios now. I provide you with access to an ePortfolio system, you use it (more instructions provided) and, every now and again, we get together to talk to other ePortfolio users about how it's going and what you're getting out of it (or not!).

Finals are all over, all praise due to NoDoze. My biggest hurdle was the paper for English I wrote on The Tempest.
