ATTENDANCE:

Attendance and participation are very important in this activity-based class.  Consequently, you will be penalized a letter grade from your final score for each absence after the first.  Whether the Undergraduate Dean recognizes the absence is irrelevant. 

        Tardiness to class is also not the proper conduct.  Arriving late to class will result in a point deduction from your final grade. 

MAKE-UP EXAMS:

Make-up exams or skills tests are given at the discretion of the professor.  Only extenuating circumstances warrant rescheduling of missed work.  It is the student's responsibility to contact the instructor in such cases.

HONOR SYSTEM:

See the 2009-2010 Student Handbook: A Guide to Civil and Honorable Conduct.  Violations will result in a grade of “F”.

WEATHER:

The class will meet regardless of the weather conditions.  If you are unsure where the class will meet, call 953-5559.  Complications caused by the weather may also cause delays in ending that day’s session as scheduled. 

E-MAIL:

You will check your e-mail the day before each class.  This will serve as our chief means of communication for last minute changes, exceptions, exams, or other details that need your attention before the next meeting.

SAFETY:

“Challenge by Choice” is observed during the activity sessions.  It simply means that if you feel uneasy about participating in an activity or any part of that activity, for any reason, just say so.  You will control the degree of challenge or risk that you will assume in completing any of the outdoor adventure activities.  This does not relieve you of completing the unit objectives for full credit.
