A lot of the advice and information that come through these blogs are how to immerse yourself and gain the entire college experience. While student involvement is half the battle, the sole purpose you are attending EMU in the first place is to educate yourself and hammer out a degree.
I’m sure you don’t want “big brother” over your shoulder, reminding you to study hard and attend class, but if you really think about it, you’re getting paid to go to class. I don’t mean “you’re investing in your future” and getting a paycheck five years from now, but you’re shelling out the cold hard cash, why not actually earn it?
So, let’s do that math on just how much you’re “getting paid” for every class undergraduate class you attend.
Making a couple of assumptions that most classes are 3 credits and meet twice a week:
1 credit = $246.95 x 3 credit hours = $740.85 per class.
There are 15 weeks in a semester, meaning your class with meet 30 times per semester.
$740.85 / 30 class periods = $24.70 per class.
Next time you consider skipping a class, feel free to comment below and I’ll give you my contact information to transfer $24.70 to my Eagle Card account.
