College: The #1 Reason to Never Miss a Class

Money. College is a luxury and getting an education is a priority, however, it is important to keep in mind that skipping a class costs money. Whether you are paying for it with student loans (which is going to affect you financially for an extended period of your life) or a parent or loved one is shelling out money and making a generous investment in your future, the best way to get out of bed is to consider finances.

Have you ever thought about how much one class costs? Depending on your University, each class costs money. If you are hung over, sick, or just don’t feel like it, that is money being flushed down the drain. And to be honest, depending on the price of your education, a level of guilt should set in when you realize one missed class could be upwards a hundred dollars. That is your money or whoever is paying for your education so if there is one thing that should continually motivate you to make every class you must think about the price. It is important to keep this in mind when you choose your classes too. Rocks for jocks or an easy A is the same price as a class that could evolve your intelligence, so, picking classes based on the concept of money is another reason to choose wisely.

Keep this in mind when you start the New Year cause college is expensive. Your perspective might change when you think of one word: Money.
