Sit in front.

Image result for sitting in the front row of class

A great tip from my friend Alessio Facts, a freshman at St. John’s: sit in the front. Clearly, even if people decided to follow this advice, not everyone physically can do so. But as a metaphor, Alessio’s point is solid. Don’t be a number, or another face in the crowd. By listening attentively and speaking to your professor after class about a topic that interested or confused you, you’ll accomplish three things:
1. You’ll learn more about the topic at hand.
2. You’ll form a relationship with someone who very likely will help you later.
3. You’ll allow Alessio to brag that he taught you something.
