Some Useful Academic Services:
There are several computer labs on campus. These include the
Dougherty Science Building (Rooms 121, 122, and 126), the
Henderson Humanities Building (Room 353), the Stokely Memorial
Building (Room 12), a Macintosh lab in the Warren Art Building,
and the Stephens-Burnett Library Computer Lab. Become familiar
with them, their locations, andt their hours of availability.
Workers there can help if you have computer difficulties with
e-mail or printing a document. They can also help you with
HTML projects and your Email account, or direct you to the
right services. If the computer eats your homework or you
have trouble getting your e-mail to work, these are good places
to begin the quest for a cure.
Writing Labs: The Academic Support
Center contains other resources in addition to the standard
dungeons; there, you can find additional free assistance with
or comments on your writing. You can arrange for tutoring
by calling extension 3590 or showing up for peer tutoring
sessions at the Baker Building (contact Academic Support Center
for times) or the Henderson Humanities Building's Writing
Lab in the evenings. (Typically, the hours are 7:00-9:00 p.m.,
but these hours will vary from term to term.) Though the writing
tutors do not proofread papers, they can provide help with
specific problem areas if you ask them.
(AD 324): Carson-Newman makes reasonable accomodation
for students wtih documented disabilities. Any student with
a special disability (sight, hearing, language, mobility,
etc.) that might affect class activities should notify me
and obtain appropriate documenation. To request documentation,
contact Dr. Laura Wadlington in Academic Support Services.
If you have a physical or learning disability that you think
may affect your performance in this class, please see me during
the first week of the term so we can discuss whatever accommodations
may be necessary.
Also note that there are
dictionaries, thesauruses, encyclopedias, and style guidebooks
available on-line (free of charge!) for even the most impoverished
college student. Likewise, thousands of pertinent materials
exist in the campus libraries, and millions more available
through interlibrary loan. You have already paid for their
use through tuition and other fees; it is certainly not against
the rules to use them.
