What is the importance to leaving a good impression on your professor? Leaving a good impression on a professor is crucial for many different reason. By making a good impression on a professor they can write you letters of recommendation which can go a very long way in the job world. Letters can do so much for you is if you make great impressions on your professors in your major they can make or break you. Also a professor can open up doors for you if they are doing projects or experiments and they may ask you to help them in the project. By doing those kind of experiments you can show that you are serious about what you are studying in and it can help you learn more as well.
Now how do you make a good impression on your professors? The first thing i have to say is that it starts the first day you walk into the class room, the professor recognizes students who sit in the front compared to the back and trust me a lot of professors notice it. By Sitting in the front of the class it shows you are there to learn and you plan on trying to take in everything that the professor will throw at you. Now something that professors always watch for is texting some professors say they do not tolerate it and they don’t enforce but they will keep that in mind and remember that.
Next you have to actively participate in class and put effort into your papers and quizzes and tests. Something that I recommend doing is talking to your professors after class about what you just talked about. Then start talking about some current events that are similar to what is going on in class by doing this it shows you are taking and interest in the class. Something I would also recommend is going to the professors office hours and go to talk about papers and see how you can do better in the class.
By doing all of these most professors will be willing to help you out with anything you need. Some professors do have a lot of pull and highly regarded so it doesn’t hurt to try to get on their good sides. So hit the books read the newspapers and listen and just enjoy all the classes you have.
