    We had an English essay due in college on Wednesday , but the professor could not make it so, therefore the class was cancelled. This Friday was a holiday so we had no class the next time we would have class would be on Monday. So I handed in my assignment to the English department and they time stamped the essay and put it in her inbox.

    So was that the right thing?

    You personally hand your assignments to your prof?

    All ours had to be handed in at the faculty admin,time stamped, dated and signed by both us and the admin assistant.

    Sounds like you're going to a weird university. I'd worry about that more than what you did with your assignment.

    Yup. As long as they stamped it, you should be good. The people in the front desk could vouch for you :D

    Absolutely not. What you were supposed to do is not write the essay until Sunday night, then hand it in on Monday. To do this successfully, you would email him on Wednesday saying you completed the essay (which you really haven't) and say that no one was in the office when you went and you didn't want to hand it in without a time stamp. Obviously, because Friday is a holiday, you can't hand it in then. So you say you'll hand it in on Monday and apologize for the inconvenience. Then, even if he says not to do this, you can say you never checked your email and hand it in on Monday anyways.

    What a keener :rolleyes:.

    More like it won't be a disadvantage.

    Turning in early = on time, turning on time = late IMHO.

    Absolutely. That's the textbook-correct course of action.

    This reminds me of when we used to play "keener bingo" in lecture. Those were the days...

    Well according to some people in this thread his responsibility makes him a keener, whatever the hell that is, and also makes his university a bit weird.

    :rolleyes:
