    And on the internet. When I was an undergrad this was not possible. Sorry but I think this is so cool. My professors like don't even tell me to pay attention.

    Not at my school. We get execution by firing squad if we get caught with ours.

    Class was always a joke, especially if you have those huge lecture halls with 100+ students.

    its too dangerous to go to college alone.

    here, take this: (hands over a straw and napkins)

    their shields can't repel spitwads of that magnitude.

    It's a strange day if I actually do work (undergrad, studying business and economics).

    I had those as an undergrad. But in my graduate degrees, classes are significantally smaller, like 20 people.

    I'm doing political science bc I was going to go into law, but I changed my mind. So this degree will be pretty useless. No reason to pay attention.

    I always had the option of taking a laptop to college classes (albeit with no wi-fi, the buildings weren't equipped with it). I never did though - the way i write notes isn't really suited to typing, as i often doodle reminder pictures or draw diagrams of interlinking points. hence all my class notes usually go in a moleskin-like notebook. a book forces me to keep it legible and organised if i can't lose individual bits of paper, plus it's easier to make linked notes back to previous pages/sections. Little tab-sized coloured post-it notes help, too.

    also i often found that the people typing notes (myself included when i did try) could never type fast enough to keep up.

    My school's like that, too. So long as we're doing well and not bugging anyone, we can use them. I don't think we're supposed to, but the teachers don't point them out or take them away. (A lot of people use them for translation or taking notes.)

    Remember to nod your head occasionally and breathe.

    I used to sit in the back of class and play SNES Zelda on the computer in one of my classes. Those were the days
