OFFICE HOURS -- OPEN SHOP (very likely to change)
(subject to change, especially at the beginning of the term)

Open shop hours are shared with other courses in the Core Studio classroom, JONSSON-4201. Specific times for EI TAs are posted in the table below in green. Yellow indicates open shop without an assigned EI TA. Please note that all TA office hours are held during their open shop sessions. Open shop is automatically cancelled the weekend before a Monday Holiday and after a Friday Holiday. Even though not officially listed, some of the yellow time slots have a TA who has been or is presently or has been an Electronic Instrumentation TA.  They can sign plots and checklists, but only if they are comfortable doing so and if their other responsibilities permit. They may not have access to EI equipment. Access is restricted to EI TAs. For Sunday open shop, the handicap entrance on the 3rd floor of JEC should be open.

OPEN SHOP HOURS BEGIN after First Week.
