Class Expectations

All students in all labs are expected to adhere to the following guidelines.

  1. Students are expected to spend a minimum of two 50-minute sessions in the study labs per week.
  2. Students are responsible for having their PA sign them in and out immediately upon entering or leaving the labs. Without a staff signature, you will not receive points toward your grade.
  3. Lab sessions must be used to study or complete class assignments.
  4. Cell phones are not allowed in the lab. Please turn your cell phone off or on silent when you come into the Bluemont 116 lab. If you need to make a call or send a text, please do so outside the study lab as it is a distraction to others.
  5. Students are expected to maintain a studious atmosphere in the Pilots Lab. Disruptive students will be asked to leave and will forfeit their points for that time frame.
  6. Students are responsible for adhering to the K-State Student Code of Conduct.
  7. Students are also responsible for obeying the K-State Honor Code. If you're unsure about something, here are some tips regarding the Honor Pledge and avoiding honor code violations.

Technology Use

  1. Students are responsible for adhering to the K-State Information Technology usage policy.
  2. Students working on class assignments have priority for computer use.
  3. Students may e-mail from the lab, but e-mail will not be considered a priority unless it is directly connected to a class assignment. E-mailing will not be considered part of PA or study time.
  4. Internet surfing (not related to your academics) is not allowed in the lab.
  5. Downloading material onto computer hard drives from the Internet is strictly prohibited. If you need to save something, save it to a USB/Flash drive or online dropbox. Lab computers are wiped every night, so do not save work to the hard drive.
  6. Printing of materials is limited to 10 pages (of coursework/academic materials) per day. Anything else needs to be printed at Hale library.
  7. Food/drink is permitted near student computers.
