College Students don’t let classes crimp their busy schedule

By | September 2, 2006

College professors report that fewer and fewer students are bothering to show up for class. The increased availablity of course materials online, particularly for large lectures of hundreds of students, has made an ever-growing group of students comfortable skipping classes. Some of the professors for those large classes claim not to mind, but those are probably the ones who teach only so they can continue their research and convey that to students. Professors who add value in the classroom are likely to continue to be rewarded with good attendance. As for the students, we suggest they start attending classes, else when their parents catch on, they’ll be at home attending the University of Phoenix.
