    I agree. The class is 50 minutes. Make it count. Packing up early is just plain rude to the people paying attention and it wastes your time and money.

    Re: ISD: More Written Brilliance

    this is hypocritical since I probably wasn't in class a large % of the time, but I hated it when everyone started packing up before class was over.

    My issue was more commonly having profs run over time and then you would be screwed getting to your next class.

    Not hard for the professor to fix. A simple 1 question quiz at the end of class: what is your name. Those who leave early get a zero, those who stay get 100%(assuming they know their name).

    It just means that you were very thoughtful in not bothering people by not showing up in the first place.

    Re: ISD: More Written Brilliance

    Is it really a question? If you're looking to leave class early you're clearly not as invested as you could be. That said I did it all the time, looking back I wish I had put more effort in than I did though.

    Re: ISD: More Written Brilliance

    Most people are just being annoying packing up early, but I tend to give the benefit of the doubt. Some people need that couple extra minutes. One semester, I had class in Kildee with choir following it down in Music Hall. You had to sign in for choir every day, and if you weren't there by the time they pulled the sign up sheets, (pretty much by 11:02), you were marked late. I think you got 2 or 3 lates (plus the look of death from the director) before it dropped you a grade. So yeah, I usually tried to quietly pack up a minute or two early.

    The editorials this year are getting a little ridiculous. I'm not gonna lie.

    I think it is sad that this has to be an actual editorial, but yes, it is rude.

    This. Obviously there are exceptions if you have a ridiculously long distance to cover between classes, but from my experience those people were usually the minority.

    I don't like to agree with the ISD, but they bring up a valid point
