James Franco Struts His Back to School Style

James Franco might have been trying to fit right in with the other Columbia students with his backpack and clipboard, but somehow we have a feeling he still stands out in class. Last week he poked fun at his student/celebrity status on SNL, but it seems like he's pretty devoted to getting that grad school diploma. Meanwhile on the Hollywood side of things — he signed on to star in an Allen Ginsburg biopic and has Nights in Rodanthe in theaters this weekend, though we might pass or wait for the rental on that one.

My friend goes to brooklyn college(yea a little known cuny school in brooklyn) and he said he saw him hanging out on the stairs of the school and was talking to him. Not sure what he was doing there but my friend said it looked like he had just come out of a class.

Umm, yeah, did you guys not see his snl monologue? He was totally repping Columbia. He is enrolled both at NYU and Columbia. Totally hurt by the lack of love Popsugar. :( "other NYU students". Why not "other Columbia students" too?

He is actually doing a dual program with NYU and Columbia. He takes classes at Tisch for creative writing and something else. I go to NYU and have seen him at least twice waiting outside of tisch before class starts

oh gosh if we was in any of my college classes I would fail because I would be spending the whole class time starting at his direction, drooling, and writing I heart James on my notebook haha!

My favorite celebrity ever. I love how he's back in school. Makes him even hotter. I just saw Nights in Rodanthe just for him As for attendance, I'm in college right now and if you have a huge lecture course then professors don't take attendance usually because there's just way too many people. If it's a discussion class, then it's about 25 people or so (depending on how big your school is) and they take attendance. There's certain rules each professor has as well for attendance...

yeah... i think it depends on which college you go to, and more specifically, which professors you have. for discussion classes or maybe smaller classrooms, my TAs or professors take roll, but for large lectures, professors have no idea who comes to class

Mmmmm he is such a hottie :drool: My experience at college is that it depends on the professor as to whether your attendance record matters. Some teachers will only let you miss a certain number of days before they start docking participation points, or thre really strict ones will drop you from the class altogether. Most of the time, though, the professors don't check attendance, especially if you're in a huge lecture hall (unless they hand out some in-class assignment to verify who was in class and who missed it).

haha popculture tell that to the professors at West Point. You could not miss ANY days the whole 4 yrs unless you were in the infirmary or there was an emergency or death in the family. Also, my sister goes to college and I think it depends on the instructor. Some do not want you missing and some just want you there for tests so it looks like they actually did something. But all "big" colleges do not work that way of letting you miss as much as you want.

he looks really hot here. my friend goes to UCLA and she had a class with him! can't believe it... so jealous. haha. i think he's able to miss as many classes as he wants as long as he passes his exams... that's how it works at big colleges. no one keeps track of how often you come to lectures
