I was lucky enough to get to sneak into a lecture this afternoon and witness life at university all over again…
Funny enough, choosing to go to a lecture (although I’m not currently enrolled) allowed me to observe things I didn’t even notice throughout my entire 3-year bachelor program!!! For one, I was shocked by the number of students who were either constantly on their phone or simply too busy finishing another assignment or presentation on their laptop to listen to what the professor had to say. To be honest though, I recall when I was in their shoes.
University is not easy, I get it. And oftentimes it feels like professors forget that their subjects are NOT the only thing that is going on in a student’s life but I think it’s safe to say that if you’re going to attend a lecture, make sure you’re there to get the most of it. Nobody is forcing you to go. So if you choose to go, don’t miss what the professor is saying and don’t be afraid to ask questions.
Going to university and having direct access to so much knowledge plus other people’s opinions is a huge privilege that should not be taken for granted! So if you haven’t already, I challenge you to give it a try this week or – for those of you who are not currently enrolled – I dare you to check out if there’s an opportunity to visit a lecture at a university near you and make it worth your time!
