Office Hours*
 *Students are invited to meet with their professors during office hours or by appointment. COC meetings may alter this schedule.
My office is in Mentry 230. I’m always available for a quick chat before or after classes (Mentry Hall #305). We can speak then or arrange to meet at another time. I can often be found in the COC Art Gallery. Meetings and such can alter the afternoon schedule. I live in LA; the Sepulveda Pass (405) can cause delays for morning classes.
*Please know that all questions are welcomed.
