It should be a great semester! Below are the details you’ll need if you are attending classes in Manhattan, so please read on. Required texts and classroom assignments are below. So read on, and once again, we look forward to a great semester!
Classes begin on Tuesday, January 21st. Monday classes won’t start until the following week, January 27th.
Students entering Palmer Manhattan for the first time should contact firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time to take an ID picture, answer any questions, and give you some handouts. Just contact email@example.com to set up an appointment.
Please read on for details you’ll need! And please be sure to familiarize yourself with the blog and its contents! You’ll find the answers to most questions here on the blog.
- The East, West and Avery classrooms are located in the Avery Fisher Center, 2nd floor, between the elevator banks. The East Room is to the left; West is to the right; and Avery is straight back and to the far right. PC classrooms are in the computer center, one level below the lobby.
- When you enter Bobst Library the first time, go to the far LEFT to the privileges window to get your Bobst pass (good until your ID is ready) or, for continuing students, a sticker for your LIU ID. Details about the ID’s is posted on the blog here. Allow some extra time at the privileges window in case there’s a line on the first days of the semester!
- Be sure that you are subscribed to kiosk: https://lists-1.liu.edu/mailman/listinfo/cwp-kiosk and that you have activated your MyLIU account at https://my.liu.edu/psp/PAPRD/?cmd=login.
