Types of Students in your Class: The university community is another place to obtain a certificate of experience as pertains to life. You will see these types of students in your class and in the University community in general. Then will you agree that God actually created several breeds of living beings. I am a student and i know what it means when you see some students crack jokes just to end up laughing at the joke themselves while there are others who crack the same jokes and yet still, are able to induce laughter and make others laugh along in the class, department, etc. After taking some of these observations, i have decided to write this article just to catch fun which will serve as an eye opener to some people.
Types of Students you Will meet in Your Class/Department
#1. The Clueless Students
“Paul I know, Jesus I know, who are you”. That is a popular place in the scripture you know as a christian student. Now, these category of students are those who have no idea of what they’re doing neither do their lecturers/teachers know what these clueless students are doing too. They ask rubbish questions in the class, even when those questions have already been attended to. They do not understand themselves and also what is going on around them. During lecture time, you see them at the canteen and other wrong places. These students are slaves to asking their course mates questions. In fact, i call them follow-follow students.
#2. The Natural Born Leaders:
Most of these students end up becoming the class reps, or class monitor of the class or departments. They just have this ability to lead other students and carry them along in the class. In fact, every assignments, information, excursions, field-trips etc, they are there to assist. They are great examples to follow. That’s why students and teachers/lecturers truly adore Natural Leaders. If you find any, then know that they are blessed.

#3. The Nerds:
These students prefer to study than socialize in class activities. I think i belong to this category.. :). These types of students are brilliant when it comes to answering or asking questions in the classroom. They have fewer friends who understand them. Though other students take them to be snubs, but yet still, nerd focus on their books that they forget what others are saying about them. These students most times are quiet, and innovative. They can be funny at times when need be.
#4. The Teachers Pets:
These types of students do sit at the front of the class to laugh at every joke lecturers/teachers are cracking. They may not be as brilliant as the nerds, but they are fun to be with. They are so annoying most times even to lecturers and their fellow students. They are also good at asking irrelevant questions just to throw some lecturers off balance. If you fail to understand them, you may think are are into ITK (I too Know) gang.
#5. The Slackers:
These are students you will find them in your class. They show no interest in anything in the class. They refuse to pay class dues, not because they do not have the money, but that’s their nature. They are perceived to be disaffected, apathetic, cynical, or lacking ambition.
#6. The Hard Working Students:
These are students who knows what they want and will always do everything possible to get to where they want. They may not actually be the smartest in the class, but trust me, they are goal setter and achievers. These students can work tirelessly like the ants just to make sure success is achieved. I love these types of students.
#7. The Bullys:
You will find them disturbing their fellow class mates (the clueless students and the intellectual outsiders). They are talkative students. These type of students can stand for what is correct and have the confident to participate fully in the class room not minding the flaws he makes. Other students secretly love them for who they are but not for what they do.
#8. The Funny Students (Clown):
These students are funny sometimes. They make others laugh in the class but not always. They are good at entertaining people. Some of them are brilliant while some are not.
#9. Over Serious Students:
These students are over serious that they forget about every other things achievable in life apart from the book their parents sent them. They cannot laugh, they are not funny, they do not talk. These type of students take life too serious that it shows on their faces. The way they run for lectures baffles me sometimes.
#10. The Notice Me:
These are the attention seekers. They would want everyone in the class to know their good performances in the class. These set of students turns out to be the centre of attention to both the class mates and lecturers or teachers. They answer questions even when it’s not asked. :).
