There are very few things in life in which the difference between success and failure comes down to simply showing up. Just “being there” doesn’t typically get it done.
College is one of the places where “showing up” can make the difference for achieving college success. The reason for this is that many students don’t make it to class on a consistent basis. Given that, you can actually gain a “competitive advantage” relative to most by consistently going to class – by just physically being there.
