Welcome to Sports and Entertainment Marketing 1!  It is my pleasure to have you in my class and I look forward to facilitating your exploration of the world of Sports and Entertainment Marketing and sharing skills and knowledge that you will be able to use throughout their lifetimes.  I have outlined below a brief summary of what will be covered in this class, how students will be graded, and my class rules.  I hope to partner with you to ensure you have the greatest opportunity for success.  With that in mind, please feel free to contact me anytime at if you should have any questions or concerns.  If you would like to keep up with our progress, I will be using a Canvas page that will include all assignments, readings, presentations, etc.  Additionally, grades will be posted on PowerSchool and you will be able to see any missing assignments there too.

Self-Control!  Only leave your seat when given permission or directed to by me.  (Sharpen your pencil before class, throw away trash on your way out.)
