Do you still remember in what class you were when being high school student? In class A, B, C, D, or even E? Whatever class you were from, we believe you didn’t choose the class by yourself, did you? You had been set up to occupy the class, be a good ‘citizen’ of your classroom, and you were also OK about it.
Now, when you have been college students, will you still be OK to be set up for the class? Or, you tend to love choosing your own class for every semester you will be in campus? Let’s check out what students say for this… Frans Aji Muda Akbar, Media Covered and Networking Staff, ESA Member 2007
“I prefer to choose my own class. Choosing our own class means giving space for us in choosing the lectures who are going to teach us. I’m sure we can enjoy in learning when we can choose the lecture by ourselves” Rivall Rinaldi, ESA member 2005
“I agree if our class is set up by our Head of Study Program. When we have been set up to fill in certain class, it can minimize the social jealousy among students. There is tendency, when some students can have the class based on their willingness, the other students will be jealous of it. So, I believe, to minimize the jealousy, setting up for the class is one of the solutions” Rahmi Widiyanti, ESA member 2008
“For this beginning, I am ok to be set up to fill in certain class. I am now in class B of English Study Program. That doesn’t really matter because I am still new student here. I still have no idea about the character of the lecturers who teach me. Anyway, I hope, for the next semester, I can choose my own class so I can attend the class of the lecturers that I want them to teach me”. (dhz)
