Post Haste: ‘Post’ reporter unsuccessful in attempt to find serial class skippers; Marzec appeals conviction

“I’m wearing cargo shorts. Do you think I’ve missed a class?”

Good morning. Here's what you need to know for Tuesday, Sept. 1, 2015:

Welcome to your second Tuesday of the academic year.

In honor of week two, The Post attempted to find a serial class skipper. It should warm the hearts of professors everywhere to know that this was more difficult than expected.

Several students said they hadn’t yet missed a class. Some said they had, but just slept through it. Nothing malicious there. One student seemed offended to have even been queried.

“I’m wearing cargo shorts. Do you think I’ve missed a class?” Max McDulin, a freshman journalism student said.

So there you have it. Bobcats must go to class for at least one week.
