Getting to class on time is perhaps one of most important things you can do as a student. Getting to class on time allows you the opportunity to absorb everything that your instructor mentions in that class period.
Missing course information because you didn’t show up to class on time can really hurt you. It is also, in a way, disrespectful if it becomes a habit. There are professors out there who are understanding about students coming in late for class. These professors understand that life happens and sometimes tardiness cannot be helped. Unfortunately, there are many students who take advantage of an instructor’s leniency on tardiness. It is important to not build bad habits in this area because one day, God willing, you will have a job. In the professional world, deficiency in being punctual is rarely acceptable.
Make punctuality a habit.
