Con: Is it better to drop the class than get a bad grade?

Perseverance is the key to education.

Difficult classes, long study hours and a million exams; maybe a million is an exaggeration, but it definitely feels that way when you have four classes and have to study for midterms in all of them.

Sometimes it seems easier to drop a class that is more demanding then the rest, but that is when you have to buckle down and face the challenge.

Running away from difficult situations is the simple solution, but it is a bad character trait to take on.

You will never know how strong you are if you never challenge yourself, and one of those challenges is going the extra mile to pass a course.

“Worrying about one class seems a waste of time when you have four other classes that you need to concentrate on,” said EC business major Lisa Cambridge.

The time you invest in passing a hard course will be viewed as overcoming a challenge, and the lessons learned will stay with you, because they were not easily achieved.

“I was failing my math class and thought about dropping it, but, instead, I went to the tutoring center and put extra time into the homework and ended up with a C in the class,” student Alisa Thompson said.

” That grade was more gratifying to me then the A’s I had, because I worked harder for it.”
