The following is an computer-generated summary of the video transcript.
So first of all, the student faculty ratio at Georgetown University is eleven to one, which means you really get to know your professor's obviously, like with any other campus if you're taking your intro class is like, enter to philosophy. Or, in Georgetown's case, you're into to theology, which could be like Problem of God or any other theology class attempts to be bigger, but that's just the way the wind blows with introductory classes. As your classes get a little bit higher level than the class size gets smaller and smaller, what I really love is that I get to really know my professors and countless times have had professors write me recommendations because I really got to know them at office hours. Because for a lot of other classes of Georgetown, since it is a smaller school, which I love about this, that I really get to know the professors and not the T A s. I mean the tears. Compared to a big school, you have a lot more interaction with your professors and professors have given me his recommendations and a whether it be for internships, scholarships or otherwise I'm actually just had coffee with my professor. Wrote me a recommendation yesterday at a coffee shop. How are classes? Discussions? How our class discussions. Well, for most part, if you don't go to class, then you won't pass According to write my professor for a lot of classes, they participation is important. Professors really want to get to know who you are. Here's a video of my professor in Entered ethics throwing a microphone at a student. Another thing is we have other classes, which are, you know, obviously more formal. Have several academic buildings, so but for the most part, they're pretty smaller. There's smaller classroom, so I route have, like, around, like twenty students in my class twenty five. The smallest loss of ever had was five, and it was an entrepreneurship class. O uh, really depends on what your course load is and what your course is. So for office hours, I definitely would record my top. This hour is that helps so much for really getting to build a good relationship with your professor. Um, one time, I would just go roll up to my professor's office hours, and we really have a question about class. So those are the kinds of relationships that will stick with you even after college. Like sometimes I have a professor who lived like works of the International monetary funds to the IMF in Washington, D. C. And so I have to take a bus to get office hours over there, and at first I thought it was a pain to get all the way there to see my professor for office hours. It became like a really great experience, because if you made the track than you, you really got to know him. Which free coffee and professor student really like closeness like that's really great. So that's That's what I would say that Classe Tous classes are like at Georgetown University. For a lot of things at Georgetown or even any university it is. You get what you put in, and I think investing in a really good relationship with your professor is a great idea for future goals as well.
