HEY College Students: Do not begin an email message with “Hey” & always finish it with “Thank you.” Most college students do the bulk of their electronic communication via text messaging. Standards for emailing are different, especially in academic settings. Students’ emails WILL 100% influence the way their professors view them.Sime Curkovic
