Attendance #A2Z challenge

When we think of our college life all that comes into our minds our classes, fun, friends. Not to forget, attendance which is headache in a students life, especially back bencher's and friends trying to give proxy on behalf of us and sometimes getting caught too.

I still remember the long queues in front of our principal's office from students having a shortage of attendance to collect their hall tickets. Sometimes, I would also be one among them and I have no regrets at all for standing in the queue. And then cooking up some stories in front of the principal for missing classes. These memories remain fresh in my mind and make me feel like going back to college life one more time. People say it is bad to miss classes but I feel once in a while it is ok as far as you know the limits. After all, what fun is college without having some fun, Right?

  1. I personally think attendance is as important in college as it was in school. Most of the stuff I learn is self taught and I still outscore most of my coursemates. Attendance feels more like a hanging sword than anything else.

  4. There are lot of arguments and counter arguments about attendance being important. I belong to the school of thought that attendance is a tool to instill some discipline that might help one in their later years. I never bunked a day at school or college, unless it was absolutely unavoidable. Although, during the later years of my education it was less about discipline and more about that someone :D

    Nice, thought provoking post here Sushma.

  5. And those poxy roll calls when your friend is not in the class and you try to be him/her sitting at the last bench of the class. Love your theme, really. Please check my 'A' post here (Theme-Indian Spices): http://www.vibhuandme.com/2018/04/a-for-alkanet-root-magical-spice.html
