People who work hard in life tend to succeed and be more successful than people who do not. The same goes for college students, hard work and making the right grades is one way to succeed in college. Some students and most teachers believe that attendance, in class, is the key to a successful college education. I would agree wholeheartedly with them, but I am in discord, with Southeastern Louisiana University, for letting professors make their own attendance policies in the classroom.
I do not think this is at all ethical. It has always been up to the student to put in the hard work and make the grades. Students would want to do their best will attend class, but students who do not want to do their best will not. The professor should let

It was hard to focus on what was being taught when very few students cared about learning.
I attended a small private school in my home town. Even though I was a high school student, it always felt as if my hand was being held on a day to day basis. “Do this, Do that, Don’t do this, and Don’t do that”, the teachers would say.

Having my parents pay for private school education did not help me fully understand the importance of my education. Acquiring knowledge on the cast majority of subjects taught was intriguing to me, but all that learning every day just got boring. I just wanted a break, to relax sometimes.

If I choose to go to class, I am choosing to better myself, education, and life, but if I do not go to class, I choose to hurt myself, education, and life. The professor attendance polices are not a bad thing at southeastern, but I feel like it is crippling young and future students from reaching their true potential. Going to class when it is mandatory is one thing, but going when it is not and wanting to better oneself anyway is a characteristic that will go farther then and type of subject that could be taught in the
