College Series Day 18: Schedules Part 1

I'm still tweeking my schedule, so I thought that today would be a good time to give some tips on figuring out the perfect schedule. This is part 1, which is where to start:

  1. Look at the class options. Highlight or make a list of what looks interesting to you (if you don't know your major) OR what you know you will need to take for you major (if you've decided on a major). 
  2. Bring that list to talk with your advisor. They can point you in the right direction and get your list whittled down for your first semester.
  3. I suggest picking a lot of common curric classes if you don't know what you want to do. To read more on that, visit yesterday's post here.
  4. Be considerate of your meals. Leave yourself time for lunch especially! You don't want to block out lunch and have class all day. It will suck, trust me. 
  5. Have your schedule written up in a table that shows what time each class is. Have back-ups for those classes in case you can't get into the one that you want.
Tomorrow will be part 2!
