  4. Representatives from the student government are here. We discussed course evaluations by students, timing, notifications, etc. They agreed that not getting grades until evaluations are filled out is a good idea. More office hours would be a good thing. More facilities for office hours would also be nice. Faculty working conditions are student learning conditions.
