Oh, hello. I didn’t see you over there. Well since I have you here, I would like to talk to you a little bit about the importance of registering for classes as soon as possible. Now as a student myself of five years, I have dealt with registering for classes quite a few times (ten times give or take two or three summer semesters). A few of those semesters, I had slacked and waited until the last minute to register. Within those semesters, can you guess how many times I got the classes I wanted? Not many, hence the importance of registering as soon as open-registration starts. Important classes, like the General Education Requirement classes required for everyone to graduate, fill up the most quickly.
Oh, wait! Open registration starts April 18th. This is a perfect opportunity for you, dear reader, to register for your classes if you haven’t already! Now, I know that we are quickly approaching the stress and finals weeks, but hear me out here. If you set up an appointment on April 18th with an academic advisor to schedule classes, you’ll get it done before your brain gets to that mushy stage. Then, all you’ll have left to do over the summer is binge watch shows on Netflix, eat home-cooked meals, and play video games. I promise if you take some time out of your busy schedule now, look over your Degree Works to plan some classes, and schedule a meeting with your advisor, you’ll thank me later. Go ahead and JUST DO IT!
