Transcript Many times, students skipping calss can be found in the UC Game Room playing a game of fuseball to relieve themselves from the pressures of school. While thinking over his next course of action, this student is thinking more about beating his opponent rather than missing class.

SKIRPING F\ id you ever get out of ^y bed, look outside and find that you are faced with one of the hardest decisions of you life? Should you attend class today or not? You carefully weighed all of you options. And after a long, painful second one simple thought came to mind . . . SUN, SAND, WATER. As Spring rolled around many students found themselves on their way to Galveston for a day in the sun. Many students felt that this day-get-away did them good. They felt refreshed and ready to get back to school. Skipping class helped to break the monotomy of their daily routine. However, some students found themselves in this situation once too many, and if they were not, careful they often found that passing class was not a simple task when they were faced with the task of doing a whole semesters work in a few weeks. Although some chose to break away to fun-in-the- sun, others chose to stay on campus. Now, you are asking yourself, "Why?" Some students come to school and then decide that skipping would be best. Others, may get carried away and lose track of time, while chatting with friends, falling asleep in the library, or just plain goofing off. Many students opted for a game of pool or as the springtime weather came in full force, many were found outside playing sports like frisbee, tennis or gathering up some friends for a game of soft- ball. In the end, most students agreed that skipping class gave them the edge to make it through the semester. Did you ever find yourself struggling to go to class? And what did you do if you skipped class? Did you go eat, play games or gossip with friends? Well, you were not alone;many students found better things to do instead of attending class. 78 -fy Academics Although many don't admit it, many students skip class to study for that big exam. Many students venture to do this in the library. Photo by Thomas Nguyen. Slapping Class A 79
