Hi all! We have a snowy morning and a 2 hour delay on campus. Assuming that doesn’t change office hours will shift slightly. I’ll be in today 11am-1pm.
We have departmental visitors this Monday and Wednesday, which will affect my office hours! I’ll be in the office this week Monday (11:15-12:30), Wednesday (11:15-12:30), and Friday (10-12). Normal hours resume Friday, and this is the last week of disruptive meetings, so we should be set moving forward. See you all soon!
The subject line says it all! I need to be out of town this Friday, so after I see you today I’ll look forward to reconnecting with you the Monday after spring break. Best, Prof. Reed
