Serious Note

         According to university policy, summer courses are supposed to have the same content and rigor as courses taught on regular (Fall and Spring) semester.  In other words, this course will have the same work requirements as in regular semester which runs for 16 weeks.  However, due to the fact that there are only six (6) weeks for the summer session, we will have to work more than twice as hard.  For example, we normally require 10 push ups every week (in your own private room).  Now, it seems to be logic that we have to do 27 pushups every week for the summer session.
