Glenn’s Office Hours: SUMMER 2021

Tuesdays between 2-4pm (with the exception of 8/1) between 5/18 and 8/8.

NOTE: On July 6, I will be in a VERY REMOTE region and may not have service — if you try to connect with me then and are unable to do so, please let me know by email and we can plan to meet at an alternative time. 

NOTE: Due to the extenuating circumstances associated with the COVID pandemic, note that my hours are to be held remotely.

To meet with me during my hours, please do the following:

  1. Email me ( during my hours* and I will get you in the ZOOM queue.
  2. I will call you or zoom or facetime (depending on which is most feasible).

Note that I do not take appointments but, rather, my hours are “walk-in” / first-come, first serve. You may have to wait a little bit, but I always make sure to get to everyone.

*This point of emailing me DURING as opposed to PRIOR TO my hours is critical and it relates to the excessive amount of email that I get — it is designed to help you, the student.

Evolution is nothing more than a “statistical bias in the rate of perpetuation of alternatives.” G. C. Williams (1966, p. 22).

“Even though the cavemen don’t seem like they were having much fun, I bet they were!” M. Geher (2012).
