Goodbye to English 368

All the grades (except class participation) have now been posted to Angel, and you should have received your paper either in the Dropbox or via email. Final grades have been submitted to the registrar.

Because of FERPA regulations, no grades can be transmitted or discussed via email, so if you have a question, you'll need to make an appointment when spring semester begins on January 8

Have a great winter break!
