Welcome to the Home Page for COMM 460, Fall 2012

During the semester various material may be added to this page to assist students. This may include reading, bibliographies, or other information to supplement the course.

Storm Notes:

As you may now know the university has been closed for Tuesday because of the weather. I will accept the October "Beyond the Classroom" assignment up until the start of class on our next meeting day, hopefully that will be Thursday. Please note acceptance must be completed before the start of class on that day.

I have also adjusted the daily schedule so you can see the changes we will make to compensate.

Hope to see everyone on Thursday.
