Falling asleep in class

Geez, the only thing worse than trying to stay awake in a dry lecture is trying to stay awake in a dry lecture when the lecturer is nodding off too. Grin

The first thing my Business prof said at my first lecture on Wednesday is that she would wake up anyone who is sleeping in class. And this is in a 200+ person class.

I've never fallen asleep in class myself. I just skip class and sleep in bed if I'm tired.

Wake up!

In reply to: Re: Falling asleep in class

I had a professor who woke sleeping students by hitting them with chaulk. He was incredibly accurate (obviously many years of practice). He hit most people directly on the forehead, a few times in the mouth, but never hit the wrong person.

I never fell asleep in that class, despite a history of doing so at least once per semester in most lecture courses. Deterrence at its finest!

My freshman year of college included a class right after lunch in a 250 seat auditorium with plush seats and somewhat still air circulation. To top it all of, the linguistics lecturer spoke with a heavy Eastern European accent. This was the ultimate combination for a napaholic to jump off the wagon. Of the total 20 class sessions this class met, I fell asleep a total of 11 times - a whopping 55%. I still pulled off an A though with my high-tech handy dandy tape recorder to thank.

it can be worse...

During my PhD I had a class with my supervisor and 3 other students. Two students in the class were not in our lab, but there was a lba mate in the group as well, for a total of four. I and my buddy, did not do the reading the night before. Instead we drank a case (24) of beer. I admitted this the following day at the class, (my buddy was not impressed). Our supervisor did not talk to us for two weeks... (He is now a rather famous neurocientist at a big AMerican University in Georgia).

In retrospect, we shoudl have slept. From that day on our supervisor would bring a pot of coffee for us.....
