Student: Good morning, Professor Ubeall.

Professor: Good morning, Julie. What can I do for you?

Student: Well, I just wanted to explain why I was late to class today. You see, I needed to go over to the advising center to get my registration schedule signed.

Professor: I see. Are you taking the next course in this sequence?

Student: Now that I’ve finished the prerequisites, I might as well.

Professor: I would recommend it. The papers you’ve turned in so far are are quite good. I think you have what it takes to do well next semester.

Student: Thanks for saying that.
