Planning for the semester

It's the fifth week of school already! Time passes by sooo fast every semester, just a reminder to everyone that this Friday is the LAST day to drop your classes! I recently dropped a class because I replanned my schedule and realized that I didn't need it to graduate. So I definitely highly suggest people to write out their schedules and MAKE sure to take the right classes and drop the ones that is not necessary or at the least interesting BEFORE this friday. This is one thing that i learned that can make or break your semester. Because taking a class that is not required OR interesting can really drag a good semester down.

Also summer telebears have already opened up. The schedule is up online and I highly suggest you guys to sign up for summer classes NOW if you are planning to take them because they are filling up fast. I recently signed up for a R&C class, and due to the new rules of R&C requirements...freshmen and sophomores should have both parts of their R&C requirements completed before declaring their majors. Many things are different now from when I was a freshmen, so just giving you guys a heads up on what is going on!

One last thing! Next week the major advisers will be busy, so they will not be in their offices much (starts on Wed) So i highly suggest that people who needs to see their advisers go to Office Hours NOW. I know that the Fall 2010 telebears is just around the corner and its important to PLAN PLAN PLAN.

:) I am very excited right now because the weather is finally looking sunny and I just cant wait to go study and lay out on memorial glade. But other than what is currently going on, I highly recommend planning in advance. I am going to graduate next year around this time and I really just want everything to go smoothly so I will not end up staying an extra year or semester. Or take summer classes AFTER ive graduated or piling up on 20+ units on the last semester. TO avoid all of the above it is very important to see your major advisers or peer advisers and just plan out all of the schedule and make sure that they are offered in the fall/spring of the semester you want to take them! Plus back up plans are always a plus, I know many times the classes that you want is take fills up quickly and because not everyone is a graduating senior it can be a problem in enrolling.
