    Itís straight off to the second class

    Is the following sentence correct and natural?

    After getting something quick to eat in the cafeteria, itís straight off to the second class.

    Provided it fits the context, it's grammatically correct.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's part of a description of a student's typical day at university.

    In that context, I would say it's fine. It's quite informal - perhaps a diary entry - but it contains no errors.
