    This is the first time I've even heard that such a thing happens. So I guess that means no, I've never done it.

    I'm a law student in the states. Today and yesterday were the last days of class. We applauded at the end of every class... the end of a year of constitutional law seemed particularly momentous. I believe there was one class last year that we did not applaud in... he was a really horrible prof.
    I am (almost done) attending a university on the east coast (of the US), and we call our classes lectures. I suppose this is because, in addition to lecture, we also have recitation, workshop, and lab.

    All of which are part of one class.

    this. and the thing about brown nosing also...be very careful if that's not the message you're trying to send.

    of course, relative to where you are and what class, this post could be completely useless BS.

    If you mean at the conclusion of the total course, the last class of all classes with that teacher/professor:

    (In U.S. undergraduate university in any of the 4 years)

    Yes, I've felt the desire to do it at the end of the term with a professor and class I've enjoyed. Some classes just felt great (we students liked each other, liked being there, and liked the professor, who liked working with us), and on top of that, you have that sense of accomplishment that comes with the end of learning a whole new branch of study.

    So if we all feel it, as a class, on a few occasions we've applauded, for the professor and for ourselves.

    Yeah, this is what I was thinking. And I've had some professors that I really enjoyed.

    A round of applause has taken place on rare occasions at the end of the very last lectures of the semester. And only for the professors that really stand out. Other than that, there's mostly nothing.

    I remember in university, a bunch of jerks known to the prof mockingly applauded him for a nothing special lecture. A large number of the class unwittingly followed suit. Thinking that he was being mocked, the prof refused to do any more lectures.

    Yes, I'm from Europe (Ireland actually). Irish people in general also thank bus drivers when getting off at the stop, which many other nationalities have commented on as being odd.... As for lectures, some of mine are in theatres as big as 250 people, so applauding the lecturer is easier than going down to the prof at the end of the lecture due to the amount of people trying to get out of the room . For one of my english classes this year I had a different speaker practically every week so we definitely applauded at the end of each of those lectures. We tend to applaud most lectures anyway though (except one particularly dull one about font type). *shrug*

    I am from Canada and did my undergrad in geography at a smaller university. I have never applauded a lecture, unless of course we had a guest speaker or presentations. I have never heard of any of my friends doing this either.
