Even if your professor does not take attendance it is extremely important to go to class, after all that is why your going to college right? So you are probably thinking, “duh..of course I’m going to go to class”..but I say this because in college you are given so much more freedom compared to high school. Some professors do not take role, they “assume” that you will be in attendance or that you are responsible enough to study independently in the event that you are not able to make it to class. Because you have so much freedom it will be tempting for you to skip a few classes here and there…but be warned it will catch up with you. In college everything you learn in each day of class is the foundation of something else, and you will always find yourself trying to catch up on reading assignments. And then finals week comes up and you find yourself up for 24 hours trying to catch up..It’s not fun.
