"Registering for classes can be pretty stressful. Every time I register I always think that I have the perfect schedule laid out. I always try to plan a day off within my schedule so that I have time to catch up on homework and do whatever else I need to during the day. However, when I meet with my advisor, I find out that my “perfect” schedule is not as perfect as I had thought. The classes that I registered for were not the classes that I should be taking. Every semester I go through this cycle, but I have started to realize that whatever my schedule is will still work. When I talked to other students, they had had similar experiences. My advisors have been life-savers for me the last couple years. If it were not for them, I would be on the wrong track and I wouldn’t be as successful as I am now. I’ve started to learn that it’s okay to have your schedule moved around, and there really is no such thing as a “perfect” schedule. If you start to freak out about planning out your classes that you want to register for, ask your advisor for help or even ask your PAiR! Your PAiRs and advisors are always there to help and they will make sure that you have a good experience registering for classes."
