Little 500 is upon us and amid the day parties and nightly activities, one may forget about school. Avoid losing your hard-earned GPA for one week of recreation with these simple survival tips.
1. Be aware of attendance policies. Most teachers allow a certain number of excused absences with no questions asked. Don't use these in February just because you want to sleep in and watch Groundhog Day on TV.
2. Remember your commitment to class. First and foremost, we are students right now and going to class is our job. It's not just a free week.
3. But also give yourself some breather room. If you have a 95% in a class that meets until 6 p.m. on Thursday and the teacher doesn't take attendance, consider your options.
4. Know what activities you don't want to miss and what classes you can't miss. Try not go with the flow because before you know it, it's Friday and you still haven't been on campus.
Little 5 week is a blast and will fill your week up with everything but academics, but remember class is still happening.
