Go To Class

Going to class is probably the easiest step to take toward doing well in college, as well as the easiest way to avoid problems. Many professors believe that part of going to college involves the freedom to decide how to behave, and so many professors leave it up to the student to determine whether or not he/she attends class. Although your professor may not take attendance, don't let that fool you into thinking that he or she doesn't notice if you are there, or that attendance is unimportant. Attending class tells the professor that you are committed to doing well. He or she will also have more of an opportunity to get to know you. You also won't miss important handouts or homework assignments, and you will be there to note important changes in the syllabus, due dates, etc.
