Class Registration Explained By 'The Office'

We're all here for you.

Class Registration Explained By 'The Office'
The Huffington Post

Class registration. We've all been there, we've all had a minor break down, but life goes on. If you had a particularly bad registration this semester, here's the cast of "The Office" to sympathize with you.

That feeling you get when you're prematurely freaking out about classes, but you realize you don't even have to register for another two weeks!

Two weeks is plenty of time. Fourteen days? No problem. You're killing this semester, everything is going great. What could possibly go wrong?

Two weeks quickly turns into two days, and you realize you have to start planning for next semester.

It started with a whisper... and now, oh crap. Here we go, trying to think about the future. You're trying to breathe. How are classes already closing and nobody has even registered yet?!

When the fateful day finally arrives.

You have to sit in class and ask to take your laptop out in the middle of a quiz because you have to get that 9:30 a.m. communications seminar and you can't not take it because your life will be over (seriously, it looks that interesting).

When you get your schedule all figured out, hit "Enroll," and you see those beautiful green circles signifying you're in the clear!

Wow, that was so painless! Until...

You go to the next page and see a huge red "X" next to that amazing class you really wanted.

Turns out there's a page after the initial enrollment page, and when you forget that, your heart will be broken.

Realizing that you're now in an insane race with a million other panicking students to find just one more class that fits your schedule and doesn't suck.

Buckle up, the next thirty minutes are going to be rough.

When you can't find ANYTHING and contemplate dropping out.

Seriously, is 10 credit hours a thing for a full-time student? No? Well it's going to have to be.

You finally find a class, but it's an 8 a.m.

Oh, and you still didn't get that incredible seminar you really wanted. It's fine. Everything's fine.

Everything is finally over and you realize open enrollment is in a week. If that doesn't work, you can sit in on a class. Whatever happens, you know you'll eventually be able to drop that awful 8 a.m.

Did you overreact? Sure. Was there good reason? Definitely. But it always gets better.

To all students who had a stressful class registration, just know it gets better. Even if you end up with a crazy obscure class, you're still going to eventually graduate. Breathe and just be relieved that you have a whole semester until you have to go through it again!

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
