Ideally, students should always try to do their best to be in class on time. However, this is not a perfect world and incidents can interfere with our arrival to class. Sometimes the alarm doesn’t go off, sometimes professors hold over, sometimes you just simply lose track of time. Because accidents can happen, students probably shouldn’t be more than one to three minutes late to a class. It is disrespectful and distracting to other students and professors if you come in any later (unless you have a really great excuse). Also, it may be helpful to set an alarm on your phone so many minutes in advance to make sure you can get to class on time. Personally, if I can get from the second floor of Pawling to the second floor of Asher in less than five minutes and not have a heart attack, you should be able to make it to your class on time as well. Good luck!
