IC Honors Advice: The Syllabus Matters

Look carefully at Syllabi.

Why: Faculty put thought and effort into their syllabi and they give you valuable hints about the professor’s personality and teaching style. Be aware that you will be held responsible for the assignments and deadlines on the syllabus even if the professor doesn’t mention them in class. It also reflects poorly on you if you ask the professor a question that is answered in the syllabus.
