Do you let your professor know if you miss class?

Do you e-mail them and let them know or do you just skip? I never e-mailed my professors to do this.

Only if they say they want to be contacted about missing class, and even then I don't always.

^Same. Actually I need to contact one of my teachers now. I haven't been to class for a week but she hasnt said anything.

You are awesome. You just don't want to admit it. You go through hardships every single day. Sometimes, not even sleep is a haven for you. But you live. You. Are. Alive. This world can not beat you. So don't give up.You deserve a hug. You deserve a friend. Don't you ever think differently.

You
Are
Awesome
Start ****ing acting like it

Only if it's a significant number of classes that I missed -- say, if I was away 3 days or something -- so that I can find out what I missed. Otherwise it's not necessary.

No. I think most of them would respond like: "And I care, why?"

This, and only if it is a small class. If it is a giant lecture, I would only talk to them if I was missing an exam. And I always woudl rather go talk to them in person than emailing them. Emailing them stresses me out more for some reason.

Imagining professors say this makes me laugh.

If you need notes, you might be able to get these off of your TA.

You had me at hello.

Only if they take attendance and I have a legit reason for missing that class.

Most of my classes are extremely small (the smallest has two people, the largest has twenty), so yeah, I can't hide and my professors get seriously mad at me if I skip without notifying them. Even if I'm really really sick, I still have to get to a computer and tell my professor that I'm not gonna be there.

Depends. If I don't show up wednesday he probably won't care and I'd have no reason to email him. We just had a test, I'm ahead in homework, and we have a listing of all homework assignments for the entire class so I would miss nothing. All his classes run that way so occasionally going is pointless. If I'm not sure when a test is or he's been doing a lot of in class assignments on top of his homework list he hands out then I go talk to him. My other instructor this semester I just emailed. I have no idea how his classes go or what I could have missed.

I wouldn't tell them because they don't want to know! but if I was missing alot of classes due to serious illness, death in the family...etc. I would let them know because its the only real reason to ever miss classes.
I'm missing one right now out of sheer laziness..

I've emailed professors asking if I missed an assignment the day I missed class, but that's it.
