It is always useful to get to know your professors. Professors keep office hours, and the times and locations will be on your syllabus, usually distributed the first day of class. Office hours are a good time to discuss ideas generated in class, to clarify assignments, and to share common enthusiasms with professors. Eventually, you may well be asking professors for letters of recommendation, and strong, specific letters require that your professor know you as well as your work.
