Where Would You Sit?

OBBOBB Posts: 4,174Registered Users Curl Neophyte
if you were in a classroom environment and was given the choice of where to sit where would you choose?

as for me im initially shy so i would sit in the absolute back of the room against the wall. i love to people watch plus i hate being called upon(and i can sneak snacks in w/o getting in trouble)

    In high school I would have sat in the back. When I went back to college as an adult I sat in the front row, pens neatly arranged in front of me, notebook open, textbook to the side.

    Yep. Back of the room usually for me, but only if it is a fairly small classroom and a fairly easy class. I can people watch and still halfway pay attention but look at my phone or do a crossword puzzle. If it is a large lecture hall then I go for somewhere in the middle. And if it is a hard class then I would probably sit closer to the front but never directly in front of the prof.

    I would sit in the front on the opposite side of the door. Or the third seat back still along the side.

    I'm textbook introvert --- always to a corner, avoid the middle. I sat front or back though, but I like to be either all the way on the left or all the way on the right.
    If I had to be in the middle, then I usually went to the back.

    I have always sat in the same place in classrooms with desks - second line of desks in, second back. Close enough to hear and be involved, but far enough away to not be picked on.

    Seminar seating is a different issue altogether - I'm not so picky about that.

    It really depends on how interested I am in the topic and did I pay for the class or was it free or did someone pay for me to go …
  • kaybkayb Posts: 5,054Registered Users
    In high school, at the back, to the side, near a window. In uni, as close as possible to the door. In fact, whenever I go to a seminar now, I sit next to the door, I like to be able to make a really quick escape in case of a fire....:laughing2:

    I sit in the second row in almost all of my classes - all the way to the left, if possible. I sit in the back row in one class (to the left), but only because the door is at the back of the room, and I didn't feel like weaving around people to get to my "usual" seat. :lol:

    I like to be at the end of the row because I hate being cramped between people, and I don't like having to put my bag underneath the desk - it's easier to have it to the side.

    I like to be in the back usually, though sometimes I go for the middle, along the wall. The front row has always terrified me.

    Seat closest to the door, or around the edges.

    I was always self conscious about my weight so I hate moving between desks, which were always set to close. I didn't want to put my overlarge ass in someone's face.

    Either the middle or the back, depending on how easy or hard the class is. If it's a tough class, I prefer the middle. If it's an easy class, the back. I never liked sitting in the front since it's easier to get picked on by the teacher.

    in high school it didn't matter. wherever there was enough room for me and my friends.

    in college, the closest to the door.

    It depends on the class. I have one teacher whose desks are arranged with a large aisle down the center, and he does mostly lectures, but he talks with his hands a lot, and acts out some of it, so I sit towards the back in a desk that is the edge of the aisle.

    Most of my classes have assigned seats though....:neutral:

    If I'm given a choice and the class is taught traditionally I tend to go towards the front, probably 2-3 rows back, off slightly to one side.

    As an undergrad I always sat in the middle of the room. In grad school, we had square tables so just wherever. In my PhD program, I'm always in the front row, to the right side (if you're the teacher looking out at the room).

    Oddly enough, people always think that it's the students at the front who get picked on; but remember, teachers were students once. I tend to pick on those at the back, or I walk around the class and pick on the ones who aren't listening to me.

    For some reason, I tend to ignore the students in the front rows :evil3:

    For what it's worth, my seating choice was determined by my introversion, not whether I'd get picked on by the teacher. I was a pretty good class participant. Heck, I'd often get the "someone else/put your hand down" treatment.

    Usually somewhere near the back, far mid-far side of the room (farthest from the door) seemed right. I didn't like being close to the door (too busy), liked being close to windows, and it was just a good vantage point to see everything. It's also a bit out of the way of the professors steadier gazes, so if I needed moments that if seen would manifest I obviously wasn't paying attention, I would get them.

    They were always looked at the least by instructors in my observation.

    I had to sit in the very front of a math class in jc once and remember feeling overlooked. It's not until you actually make some out of the norm motion that you're noticed. Too close to feel like the instructor will get any (polite) body language feedback (pensive/hmmm-explain more or try a different approach. satisfied/ah yes - we probably all get this now, good explanation) from you, yet too close to do your own thing. Lose-lose.

    In the front row because I can get more out of the class and there's less to distract me.

    Towards the back and side of the room. It has nothing to do with wanting to hide, not pay attention, or not get picked on (actually, I love school, love classes, and was/is always an excellent student). I just get uncomfortable with the idea of lots of people behind me and able to look at me. And the idea that maybe everyone else is doing something behind me, and I don't know what! I am much less anxious if I can see what the rest of the class is doing, and know I'm doing it to.

    Most recently I have sat in the front row based on a book I read about getting good grades to make sure I pay attention and not get too distracted. It seemed to work--I was much more "present" in class.

    Either at the back corner or against a wall or window.

    I hate being in the middle and feeling so exposed- being surrounded by other other. I hated having people behind me as well.

    Of course, all the loud obnoxious kids usually got the back row.....
