Syllabus #1:


Office: Room 103 Dupree College of Management
Telephone: 404-385-1483
Office Hours: Tuesday and Friday 9:00AM – 10:00AM

Course Objectives: This class will teach concepts and strategies to help enable a student’s success in college and also foster life long learning skills.

Attendance Policy: Attendance will be taken every class. If class was not important then there would not be a need for us to schedule classes. I understand that emergencies will arise during the semester but you need to make the decision to how much of an emergency it will be if you miss a class. Therefore, for students who attend every class period a bonus of 50 points will be given. Students who miss a minimum of 2 classes, bonus points of 25 points will be given. On the flip side, students who miss 4 or 5 classes, I will deduct 25 points, and students who miss 6 or 7 classes will be deducted 50 points. For a student that misses more than 8 classes then 100 points will be deducted.

Student’s Responsibility in the Classroom:

· No Cell Phones.
· No Beepers in class.
If your cell phone or beeper goes off during class you will be ask to leave for the day and receive an absence for that class period. Respect your peers who are here to learn. Phones and beepers are a distraction and interfere with learning.
· Use a Planner
