Don’t Start Skipping Class
The first few weeks of the semester are always the busiest. You are trying to learn your class schedule, set a daily routine and take advantage of all the on-campus activities. Once you master those first weeks of college, life seems to go by smoother. But then we get into the comfort zone. Time and sleep become valuable and all you really want to do is stay in bed all day binge watching Netflix. Hitting the snooze button becomes easier and next thing you know, you are debating whether to skip class.
STOP and THINK. Skipping class, is it really that serious? If your answer was NO then ask yourself again until the answer has changed. Once you skip class once, it is a downhill roller coaster from there. Remember why you are at college and attending class. Don’t let the temptation of playing hooky get you in a bind over the semester.
Attendance is required in your classes. Professors will take roll to see who is there and who isn’t. Not being present is only hurting you. There are times where you will need to miss class for personal reasons and that is acceptable. Just because your bed is calling your name doesn’t mean you should listen to it. Go to class and you will thank yourself later down the road.
More Catch Up Time
Missing one class period can feel like you missed a whole week. You could miss important dates or other information about upcoming quizzes and tests. It will be hard to catch up and get back on track with the rest of the class. Don’t hurt yourself by getting behind.
Don’t Throw Away Your Money
College does cost money and skipping class is almost like taking that money and throwing it in the garbage. Don’t skip class just because you didn’t feel like going. You and your wallet will appreciate you attending class. (And your parents will be happy too).
You’re Limiting Yourself
Regardless of important dates and test information, you are missing out on knowledge. Don’t allow your knowledge to dwindle by cutting class. You can grasp so much from attending one class. Just think about what you can absorb throughout the whole semester.
