One thing you will probably want to do at the start of a new school year is impress your professors – especially if you are just entering college for the first time; after all, having professors who are impressed with you (and who, of course, enjoy you) may not get you better grades than you would otherwise get, but it will certainly make your classes a lot more pleasant. At the same time, however, one of the problems with trying to impress your professors is that many people go about this the wrong way – and what they end up doing instead of impressing their professors is annoying each and every one of them! It is a lot easier to impress your professors than you might think, and it certainly has nothing to do with “sucking up to” your professors; the first thing you should do in order to impress your professors is to simply show up at all your classes, and to never show up late! Your professor will notice if you are always there a few minutes early, as so many students have a tendency to always miss class and to always show up late, and in addition to noticing (and being impressed with) you showing up on time, your professors will also be impressed if you ask pertinent and intelligent questions. This is, of course, different from asking questions just to be heard; only ask questions when you feel that they are truly worth being asked – but when you start to look for such questions, you will find that you are able to come up with them, which will firstly impress your professor, and will secondly go a long way in helping you learn the material in the course. And simply working hard in class is the best thing of all for you to do when you are hoping to impress your professors; even if you are in a class that you are not particularly adept at, your professor will notice if you are truly working hard, and this will go a long way in leading them to appreciate and enjoy you as a student.
