Scheduling of Assignments, Tests, Final Examinations

Scheduling of Assignments, Tests, Final Examinations

SUBMITTED BY: Caitlin H

Hi there, 
I was recently made aware of an official rule stating that professors cannot schedule tests within the last 3 weeks of a term (for one-term courses). However, I could not find a similar rule made for the scheduling of assignments. I find that completing assignments is just as demanding, if not more demanding, than studying for a test. I would like to know why this rule has not been extended to assignments and if something can be done about it. I personally have 4 papers due during the last week of the term leaving me little time to study for my exams happening TWO days later.

Hi, as the subject goes, I found your pamphlet in the orientation week package and I am very interested in getting involved with the student senators in any form. I have had extensive experience in student council, school board student council, and my high school entrepreneurship club and I feel that the Senators effect the school in ways I wish to be a part of. If there are such opportunities, or any events which I could attend, please let me know and I would be delighted to participate. Thank you.
