I write for myself, for the web, and for everyone who gets me. I've been on a fasting liquid diet, traveled to Europe, and raised 2 kids. And I'm directionally challenged - I get lost a lot.

Extra Class is Scheduled for Tomorrow Night

Our extra class and library orientation will be Tuesday, July 29. We will meet at Butler Library in front of the circulation desk. After we tour the library, we may have to walk to another building on campus, so wear comfortable shoes.

Sign in with me when you arrive, so I can keep track of attendance. Do not confuse Butler Library with Butler Hall - different buildings. Butler Library is off Watson St. Check the Lindenwood Campus map for details and info on parking.

This class will meet as usual from 6 - 10 p.m.

  • You can create a profile at any time; you don't have to wait until it's time to submit a paper.
Let me know if you have any questions.
