Week 9, Thursday: April 8

Well done everybody to get our Covid numbers on campus back to enviable levels: we're way below the community spread levels, and that is thanks to YOU, the students!!

Also great news that we're going full steam ahead with a regular semester for Summer and Fall 21! Make sure you do the following:

  • make sure you've tried out the new Workday student environment for registration!
  • check your Muhlenberg email for the email from Housing and Residential Life if you qualify for on-campus housing (including MILE houses)


The course schedule will be available through Workday Student starting April 15. Rising seniors will begin registration on April 27, followed by rising juniors on April 30 and rising sophomores on May 4. You need to talk with your advisor about your course selection, as they still need to approve you first before Workday Student will allow you to register!

Schedule for today

2-3 PM: Get Stuff Done Club: drop by with any questions you have, or just to say hi to me or other students in my courses. This is the equivalent of office hours/drop-in tutorials, your exclusive access to me. No appointment needed. Breakout rooms available, including quiet study space!

For HST271, our DLA Rachel will be available to help you with all your technical queries.

Find the link on the SECRETS page on your Canvas course - this semester there is only one link for all the meetings.

  • Zoom session: 3:30 PM – 4:45 PM, link on Canvas SECRETS page
  • View the materials and pick your options, leave comments/questions on the slides, and bring your thoughts about WWII and the Civil War to class (all details on the course website under Week 9). It stops being so messy but it keeps being violent. Welcome to Chinese history...
  • Blog post for week 9  is due at midnight. Don't forget to collect your points with the Canvas quiz (declaration).
  • Zoom session: 12:30 PM – 1:45 PM: link on Canvas SECRETS page
    • Writing time! Join the community, and pick my/each other's brain for tips, tricks and how-tos on writing and project management.

Fun stuff

Look out for each other, just like these squirrels: even as the nights get a bit warmer and we're making progress towards spring, make sure you stay safe in your "pod"! (Not sure where you get the tails from but let me know when you find a cosy substitute)
