Classroom Expectations In some respects college is much less formal than high school. One place this tends to be most visible is in classroom expectations. Class attendance may not be as rigidly enforced as in high school Subjects which were avoided in high school may be frankly discussed in class. Faculty tend to have a more casual relationship with students. For the most part, no one cares how you dress, though that may vary depending on the class. Students sometimes mistakenly think that this informality means that anything goes. It doesn't. Here are a few general guidelines for what is appropriate. Go to class. You've heard it before. You need to go to class. And you need to go regularly. Most students miss an occasional class. Most faculty are understanding. But faculty aren't understanding when you fall into a pattern of showing up for a couple of classes and then missing a couple of classes. They aren't very understanding when you miss two or three weeks and then show up wanting to make up work. Go to class on time. Most faculty hate to be interrupted during a lecture or class activity, and a late entry is an interruption. Some faculty give new assignments at the start of class, and you don't want to be in the position of having to ask for something to be repeated. An occasional late arrival shouldn't be a problem, but try not to make a habit of it. If you miss class, don't go up to the professor and say "Did I miss anything?"
