Welcome to the class blog for MCOM 100w, section 1. It looks like we’re going to have a rocky start.
The big news is that we will not be meeting in DBH 224 tomorrow due to recent water damage in the building. Instead, you will be directed to go to the new Student Union Ballrooms A and B to look for me at a table with our classroom number on it (e.g., DBH 224). We will probably reconvene outside somewhere nearby for the day, and then see where they decide put us for Wednesday’s class.
In the meantime, you can find information about this class — including the syllabus, class schedule and assignments — on this blog. You can download a pdf copy of the course syllabus from the syllabus page of this blog. Or click below:

Please check this blog regularly, as the class schedule, assignments and due dates can change. If they do, those changes will be noted on the class schedule in orange so they’ll be easy to spot.
Throughout the semester, I expect you to write like an entry-level media professional — that is, I expect your writing to be accurate, clear and concise. If you have any unresolved writing issues, this is the semester to work them out. Don’t make me resort to “vandalism.”
