A Word or Two on Classroom Etiquette:

In a large class such as this, especially one where lectures are conducted in dim light, students tend to believe that they are "anonymous" and that behavior will go unnoticed. Neither belief is accurate. Carrying on a conversation during the lecture or eating lunch or snacks are discourteous and distracting to your professor, to your graduate teaching assistants and, most important, to your fellow students. Behavior that undermines the quality of the classroom experience for all concerned will not be tolerated.
In addition, please turn off all cellular phones and other devices that beep before the start of class.
