Welcome to Autumn 2014

Hi.
I’m Anita and I’ll be at the front of three classrooms this semester at OSU.

  • HDFS 2367-10773 (010-LEC) which meets in Campbell Hall 209 on Tuesdays & Thursdays
  • HDFS 2367-10774 (020-LEC) which meets in Campbell Hall 167 on Mondays & Wednesdays
  • HDFS 5440-11554 (40-LEC) which meets in Campbell Hall 143 on Tuesdays & Thursdays

If you are interested in the basic content of those classes, hop on over to the CLASSES page and check it out.

*Waitlist note: Students on waitlists are encouraged to attend the first day of class and to approach me after. For starters? It shows me that you are genuinely interested. Beyond that? You don’t miss the orientation session. We do a lot of organizational and housekeeping tasks on that first day. It’s important.

I am considered an “easy” instructor by some and that sometimes amuses me – sometimes annoys me – but my best advice to you is this:

Come to class!

In my 2367 courses, that’s 25% of your grade.

In 5440? It’s 50% of your grade. Yes, fifty percent.

These classes are designed to engage students and you cannot be engaged with me, the material, and your student colleagues if you are not present in class. 

You owe it to yourself and to your colleagues to be present. I have ample extra credit opportunities to make up attendance points, but if you are a student that shows up for exams/presentations and nothing else? I suggest you find another instructor. You won’t do well in my class.

The rest? It won’t kill you, I promise. I enjoy what I do and most students suffer very little under my tutelage … some even (gasp) like coming to class.

I look forward to meeting all of you this first week.

We’ll spend the semester trying our very best to be right here… right now…
