I strongly urge all students enrolled in Finance 4335 to participate in course evaluations, not just for this course but also for other courses in which you are enrolled this semester at Baylor University. I value your input, not only regarding aspects where I excel but also on areas where I can enhance both the content and delivery of Finance 4335.
The evaluation period is active from today, November 15, and will conclude on December 8. Your feedback is greatly appreciated.
In a blog post from earlier this week, I indicated that I would be available on Zoom from 3:30-5 pm today. However, due to unforeseen circumstances, I will now be accessible during the 3-4:30 pm adjusted time slot. If you wish to reach out during this period, enter "officehours.garven.com" in your device’s web browser and press enter. I’ll be ready to help with any Finance 4335-related questions you might have.
