Students, faculty battle over attendance Jason Casillas State Hornet (California State University, Sacramento) November 05, 2003 Mandatory attendance policies have come as an unpleasant surprise to many students at Sacramento State. Senior Carey Carson, a 25-year-old business major, said these policies came as a major shock.“I did not think I’d be forced to go to class at all,” she said. Senior communication studies major Laura Henningsen said that students are responsible adults who can determine themselves how to best utilize their academic careers. “I think we’re at a level where we should be our own boss,” Henningsen said. “I thought we left that back in high school.” Although there is currently no universal mandatory attendance policy at Sac State, the university recommends that students attend all classes, said Sac State spokeswoman Ann Reed. Due to the lack of a mandatory attendance policy, the importance and role of attendance falls directly into the hands of the individual professors. This has led to a great variance in policies.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
