I'm going to tell you this now: Go to class.
I know that it's ridiculously tempting (I've done it myself) but it's not worth the amount of catching up that you have to do.


Seriously, who's stupid enough to skip class?  It's what you're there for!

you're there to get a degree and make connections.

you're lying to yourself if you believe college is good for anything else.

I'm not even there for the degree. I'm just there for the learning.

I don't think that's necessarily true. I enjoy the classes that I'm taking and I've been having a great time with extra-curricular stuff. Sure, it's important that you graduate, but there's a lot more to college than just ensuring a future career.

It may not affect your career, but it can affect you somewhere outside of it.

I dunno. I feel like a lot of the stuff that I'm learning in my classes could be directly applied to field I want to go into. In general, classes are meant to provide you with a framework for how best to approach the field of work you wish to pursue.

Or at least knowledge you can adapt for use within the field. It all depends on the field.

You're all still missing the point.

the initial comment was in reply to "Why skip classes that's what you're there for."
that sort of sentiment generally comes form the sort of people that go to college because they're told going to college is what you're supposed to do to get a good job.

Classes are the least relevant part of college in that regard.


I personally learned very little in classes that I couldn't have taught myself faster, but that's just how I learn. I won't argue that other people don't learn a lot from classes, but learning is not what college is for in the I'm going to college to get a job kind of way.

Oh, yeah, I did miss that point. Good luck with that, I hear the job market is brutal for college grads nowadays.

Edit: College grads as well as everyone with a pulse.

It's supposed to be crazy apparently, but it's a private party. But still 300 going.
