MESSAGE FROM DR. TOBIN
 
Welcome back - I hope you had a restful and relaxing break! The spring semester promises to be a busy one. We have several new and very interesting courses on offer, and a number of exciting events, including those led by the DUG and MESGSA. We also have some important deadlines coming up - please make a note of them. My office hours will remain the same as last semester's. Please sign up using the link on the left and if you can't make it at that time, drop me an email to schedule another time!
I look forward to seeing you all very soon!
Dr. Sarah Tobin's office hours are Mondays 2:00-4:00 p.m. You can also contact her to make an appointment.
