You have forgotten to use parenthesis when calling the print function. If you add them like this:

class Student:
    name = "Victor"
me = Student()
print(me.name) # Print is a function so you have to use parenthesis to call it

Then your code will pass.

It's worth mentioning that your code would actually work if you ran it in Python 2 due to print being classified as a keyword rather than a function in that version of Python. But in Python 3 which is what is taught on Treehouse it is invalid.
