Email Etiquette

The tone, content, and quality of your email reflect your professionalism. There is a difference between texting and emailing;  your texts to your friends/ family can be casual BUT your emails to professors and colleagues must be professional. Your professors (or future colleagues) are potential recommenders for jobs/ opportunities/ graduate programs. Represent yourself professionally at all times.

  • Address the professor (usually Dr. _______ or Professor ______)
  • Be clear and concise in the body of your email. If you have multiple questions, consider numbering so that we can answer your questions in a clear and concise manner too.
  • Sign your name – we have several students each semester, we cannot tell who you are by your email address, and more importantly, we want to know who this professional person is 🙂
Dear Dr. Hardy

  1. I want to confirm that the negation of a conditional statement is a conjunction
  2. Is it possible for one AND gate to accept more than 2 inputs?
  3. Will there be truth tables on exam 2?
Signed (Your Name/ Class/ Section)
