Success in Community College: Tips for Academic Success
There are many ways that you can make your classroom experience rewarding and enjoyable, as well as easier. Some of them are simple, such as showing up for class; others might not be
obvious to you, especially if you're new to college. By following the tips below, you'll get more out of your studies and time on campus.
Sure, it will ultimately be up to you whether or not you attend class. You should be aware that many professors consider attendance to be a critical part of the learning process. Whether or not they take attendance, they expect you to show up for class.
Victor B. Smith, Sr. says, "We've all been there. You might think it's more interesting to hang out with your friends or family, or it might be raining and you just don't feel like you want to go. My advice is: Get yourself to class. If you don't, one thing will lead to another. You'll find it's easy to miss a second and third class. You're already behind if you don't make it to class."
There are lots of excellent reasons to attend class.
- Good attendance impresses upon your professor that you take your coursework and your responsibilities as a student seriously.
- Because classroom lectures, assignment review, and discussions are an important part of the learning process, you have to be there to gain the best possible understanding of the subject matter.
- Assignments are reviewed and given out in class. If you miss class, you may miss an assignment or important information about an upcoming quiz or test.
- In many cases, professors will take attendance and even consider it as part of your grade!
