hie wellington. firstly you don't need to add any function, what that statement is simply saying by Treehouse.student that "the student function of the Treehouse class" which is what we already have. secondly you need to add your docstring before the return to explain what the function returns like so

class Treehouse:

def student(self, name):

    """Gives a pleasant message about the student."""

    return '{} is a great Treehouse student!'.format(name)
