Small Administrative details

Hello, this is Will Burghart, the grader.

Since the first exam is coming up, I just wanted to let the students know that my office hours are 10-11 MTWR, and that my office (desk) is located in Read Basement room 1. Just go to the bottom of the stairs, through the door, take a right into the large common room, take another right into the small alcove partially blocked by screens, and my desk is the barest one of the five.
