Picking Classes After Your Freshman Year!

Almost as difficult as acing your classes is choosing what classes to take. As this semester's classes dwindle down, plans for the next school year begin to form. The process of class registration may be tiresome and frustrating, so good early planning is crucial! The link, http://ud.iub.edu/ will lead to the University Division, of the IUB website. There you will find the general requirements needed before declaring a major. There is a large variety of classes to pick from, so your freshman year is all about finding what you are interested in.

Each department website provides its own information on your major. For example, the School of Journalism's website offers year by year plans to pick the best classes.

So, even though it may seem overwhelming trying to organize the required classes, general, and electives, there are many people available to help. Establishing good relationships with advisors is very important and you can do that by letting them know your interests and goals. Talking to professors and specific school advisors will also help when deciding what classes to take next, and other information on minors, concentrations, and double majoring. 

For next semester, after you scheduled your Finite math and foreign language classes, have some fun filling up the rest of your day. Take a rock climbing class, learn sign language; just learn about something new, strange, and exciting!
