Where students choose to sit in a classroom can have an effect on how professors perceive them, says Chris Hakala, a psychology professor and director of the Center for Teaching and Learning at Western New England University.
Students who sit in the front of the classroom may find it easier to develop a better relationship with their professor, unlike those who choose to sit in the very back.
Although choosing to sit in the front of the classroom may improve classroom engagement, it won’t necessarily translate into better grades, he says.
“In bigger classes, students in front do tend to be better students,” Hakala says. “That being said, if you tell a bad student to sit up front, it’s not going to do a lot.”
