I only know this because I'm an architecture student, but pulling the door wouldn't have gotten him very far. Fire code requires that all exit doors in assembly rooms (100+ people) swing outwards and have crash bars on them in case people panic. Fire code also states that no exit doors can be locked from the inside, but I could see a professor or TA being a jerk and doing that. But seriously, who leaves class early? I can see getting there late, but you kind of single yourself out for ridicule when you leave early.

Sucks to be you!! Seriously, though - were all the doors leading out locked? If so, you are one lucky person, because you have grounds for a lawsuit, as well as making it class-action. If not, tho, it was just an embarrassing moment you can at least laugh at when/if you ever have grandkids.

I've actually had two separate quarters when my voice masterclass (I'm a music major) overlapped with another class. I generally compromised by leaving my other class early when I had to perform in masterclass and going to masterclass late when I didn't, so there are actually some perfectly good reasons to leave a class early. Doesn't sound like that's what the OP was up to. They should also keep the door unlocked so that if people feel randomly nauseous or have panic attacks they can get out.

That's actually a fire hazard, if the door was locked. You need to contact your school about that. They could get in ALOT of legal trouble over that. But, I wouldn't recommend trying to escape class early again unless its a real emergency.
