Hi Scott!
name is the variable you want to print, so based on the info here, you don't need the student() = me, or the class Student code. Hope that helps or answers!

Hi, Scott, The variable and print statements need to be outside the class, so don't indent them. And remember that when we declare a variable, whatever is on the right is what is stored in the variable, which is on the left (in other words, you reversed the variable statement). Also, to get the print statement to work, it needs to be me.name so it can access the student instance, which will access the class. Hope this helps!
