The UMass Lowell campus is coming back to life. The copiers are on overdrive, printing the syllabi that we’ll hand out next week. As you prepare for the start of Spring 2014, here’s a link to an article on “The First Day” by our own John Kaag, printed in The Chronicle of Higher Education back in December 2012. The advice is absolutely timely: John offers a few reminders, tips, and encouragements to help us set the tone for a productive semester as we meet our new students for the first time.
Have a terrific Spring 2014, everyone!
