How to Introduce Myself for a College Class
Some professors use icebreakers such as personal introductions to encourage student participation in class discussions. Asking and answering questions in class is less intimidating when you know your classmates. Ironically, a well-intended activity to help you feel more relaxed can unleash all your anxieties. Preparing a short introduction paragraph about yourself can calm your nerves and bolster self-confidence when you are put on the spot to introduce yourself in college. Instead of quickly mumbling your name in a monotone voice and identifying your hometown and high school, share unique or silly details to help people remember you. Or you could introduce yourself in class by sharing a funny story about how your parents decided to name you Rocky, for instance.

You would want to make a good impression on your friends when you introduce yourself on the first day in class at your school or college. Although this post has been written with the introduction of a college student in mind, most points apply to introduction of a K school student as well. Wherever a point applies strictly to a college student, a note has been added on what a school student can say in that situation. Is there a format for the introduction to follow? The organizer, for example, may ask to include your name, place you come from, and your hobbies in the introduction.
Do’s and Don’ts
Show less Introducing yourself in class, whether you are the student or the teacher, can feel daunting. Deciding what and how much to share, overcoming anxiety, and presenting yourself as an interesting and engaged person are steps that will help you introduce yourself with confidence, both in a physical classroom or in an online setting. You should also try to smile when you speak, since this will make your voice sound calmer and help conceal any nerves. Begin your introduction by saying your first and last names in a clear voice.
