Here is the syntax you are looking for.

class Student:
    name = 'Rigby'

me = Student()
print(me.name)

Jeff Muday I just got to this point now. This feels redundant. To walk through this:

You make the class, with the str name method inside it.

You then change the instance of the class name once, then you print using dot syntax to call the name attribute, right?

Couldn't we also rather than change the instance, just print(Student.name) for the same result?
