Being in school is like working a full time job; in order to succeed, you need to put several hours into your work. However, like a full time job, you may need to take a sick or personal day. For every lecture and tutorial you miss, your professor will have gone through a lot of information. Here are some tips on how you can recover after missing a day of school :)

this is college, not high school.

You have to take responsibility. the professors won’t be on your ass to get stuff done. you need to know what you’re missing. They won’t care what you miss or what excuse you have. They’ll still expect you to know it, and they should. This is college.

make at least two friends in each class you have.

Other people might say to make one friend, but the reason I say two is because that one person isn’t always going to be in class either. The more people who have your back when it comes to filling you in, the better.

go over the lecture material + do it thoroughly!!

If you miss material, go over it!!! go over it three times! Do what you need to do to understand it. Write notes, read the book, look at the lecture notes if you have them from a friend. Listen to the lecture if that’s an option. But learning the material as thoroughly as you can will help you to be better prepared for the next class and seeing your professor for help if you need to do so! Just because you can’t make it to lecture doesn’t mean that you can’t learn to material!

go to office hours and go over the material you missed with the professor.

But make sure you already know the material. If you already know the material briefly, you can ask more specific questions about what you don’t understand. Professors are there to help, and to be honest, I’ve noticed that they love to see students and answer questions!
