I can’t even begin to explain the importance of being social in your classes. It doesn’t matter if it’s a huge lecture hall or a small classroom. You need to be “engaged” so that professors know you by your name. It might seem far fetched, but professors do care if their students are paying attention in class. They want to feel like they are doing their job well and students are actually listening to what they have to say. If they know you are a student who is genuinely interested in their class, and let’s say towards the end of the semester you are a little short of that A, you have the option to talk to your professor, and majority of the cases they will “curve” you up just because they know you! So here are some tips about being social in your classes for your benefit.
- First chance you get you need to come up with any reason to visit your professors during their office hours. Introduce yourself and talk about some subject that was discussed prior. Have questions ready about a specific topic, assignment, or anything relevant to the professors subject of study.
- Ask questions in class! Have you seen professors lecture then ask the students if anyone has questions, and nobody speaks up? They just stand there for a little bit with a dumbfounded look on their face. Guess what? You need to ask questions so you catch the professors eye as an “I care” student.
- Be prepared for class by doing the assigned reading or homework prior to class. If the professor asks a question and you already know the answer. Raise your hand and speak up. Trust me on this, you will make a good impression on your professors.
- Don’t miss class unless it’s some crazy emergency. Specially in smaller classrooms where the professor can notice you are not attending. There were countless of times I had to go to class hungover, without any sleep, and was barely staying awake during the lecture. Just showing up counts too!
