2.1 Emails

Email is Auburn University’s official form of communication. You are expected to check your email daily during each semester, in which you perform a GTA role. During working days, you are responsible to respond to student emails concerning homework or project assignments by the next business day.

GTAs/GAs are required to use their auburn’s Tigermail accounts for communications regarding any GTA matter.

GTAs/GAs are Auburn University employees, who are not allowed to work more than 20 hours from Monday to Friday. University employees are not required to work on weekends or holidays. Nevertheless, it is recommended that on weekends or holidays GTAs/GAs make their best effort to be responsive to emails.

2.2 Mails

Each GTAs/GAs has a mailbox located in Shelby Center room 3101J. All the GTAs/GAs must check their assigned departmental mailboxes at least twice per week during the official university semesters. The mailing address for the GTAs/GAs is the Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering, 3101 Shelby Center, Auburn University, AL 36849-5211.

2.3 Social Media

When you post comments and videos/photos on social networks (e.g., FaceBook and Twitter), you should avoid any remark about students and classes you are enrolled in. Please note that your inappropriate photos and comments on social media may reflect badly on our department and/or our graduate program.

You are strongly encouraged to interact with students through Canvas and Piazza. You should avoid interacting with students via social networks like FaceBook or Twitter; don’t be a “Friend” of your students on social networks other than Canvas and Piazza.
