Since I am an Adjunct (part time) Professor, I do not have an office on campus. You may contact me 15 minutes before my classes (5:00PM) Thursday Evening, by Email, or as arranged privately. Since labs and quizzes are given during class (some without notice), attendance of all classes is important. Unless you give advance notice of missing a class you may not be able to make up those grades.
