You may not think this would be a big part of college, but you should get to know your professors. You should sit in the front of the classroom and make sure your professor notices you. Professors can be a great reference when you get your degree and start looking for a job! It’s also no secret that professors tend to favor students who actively participate in class and show that they care. This might mean a chance at extra credit that no other students have an opportunity to receive. These things can happen in college, and all it takes is a little extra effort in class.
