Students, be advised that due to a faculty meeting, I will not be holding regular office hours on Wednesday, 29 February 2012. I may be able to meet for some while afterwards; please email me for appointments at email@example.com.
Also, be advised that I will not accept any appointments for Thursday, 8 March 2012. I will be defending my dissertation on that day, and doing so will require all of the attention I have it in me to give.
Keep up with the assigned readings and work.
