classes start on thursday...

<p>so do you go to the discussion section even though the lecture hasn't started yet?</p>

<p>yep, unless they tell you otherwise</p>

<p>What is zero week for?</p>

<p>its worthless. I honestly don't go to discussions zero week. In my experience, they are either cancelled and the TA never shows up or they do absolutely nothing during time besides maybe talk a little about the professor/class.</p>

So, technically, I don't start class until the 2nd.</p>

<p>Zero week helps balance out Thanksgiving in order to keep the number of instructional days relatively constant between quarters. It also gives profs a chance to get all of the administrative/introductory crap out of the way without feeling guilty about wasting a "true" lecture day. Then they can really go at it starting in week 1.</p>

<p>classes start next thursday :rolleyes:</p>

<p>I've never had discussions actually end up happening during zero week but I've heard of it happening. Your TA should email you this weekend or thereabouts to let you know. </p>

<p>Hahah. Yay for no discussions this quarter. Such an exciting schedule.</p>

<p>/And yeah, they start thursday, but if you don't have any thursday or friday classes then you don't start until the 2nd.</p>

<p>So if classes start on thursday, we go to all the classes we have that day?</p>

<p>Yeah unless you get an email saying otherwise.</p>
