Everyone student knows they shouldn't skip class, mainly because they’re told not to, but how many students ever stop to examine the real impact skipping class can have? It’s not only because it’s the “wrong thing to do.” It can really stress you out more than you think! You think you’re taking a day off class to relax and, in the end, you’re stressing more about missing. We thought we’d break down the real reasons why skipping class is a bad idea and how it can really impact your daily life. Here are five of the main reasons you should never skip classes:We don’t need to tell you that college is expensive – you already know that. Based on tuition costs, each class can cost anywhere from $50-$150 so, when you skip one, you’re essentially just wasting all of that money.Additionally, many professors will consider your attendance when grades are on the cusp. You would not want to have to take a lower grade because of something silly like not showing up! (Oh, and don't even think about a letter of recommendation or extra help on the exam review if you don't show up all year...) Lastly, you’re always going to gain a better grasp of what’s expected of you as a student, what’s going to be on exams and the meaning of the subject material if you attend all of the classes. That’s just a given. Anyone who says differently is just yanking your chain.
