All college students owe their professor apologies for all the stupid things we do during class. Here's my list of apologies to my professors.
I'm sorry for the days I came in late with food or Starbucks.
I'm sorry for the days I played on my phone or laptop instead of listening to the lecture.
I'm sorry for the days I just decided not to come to class.
I'm sorry for the days I came to class, but wasn't really there.
I'm sorry for the days I emailed asking for the extra credit to move my grade up a bit.
I'm sorry for the homework assignments I just didn't do.
I'm sorry for the tests that I failed because I didn't study.
I'm sorry that sometimes I left class early.
I'm sorry that I once hit a video on my phone in a lecture and it played loudly and everyone laughed.
I'm sorry when I came to your office hours over and over again because I needed to know my grade.
I'm sorry that sometimes I left class to work on homework for another class.
I'm sorry that I always turn my assignments in right at the deadline.
I'm sorry that I may sound like a bad student, but I know I wasn't your worst.
I'll try to do better in my other classes, but there's my apologies to you.
