Class Registration Is Stressful But It's Time To Relax

With registration just next Thursday, remember to relax and that you can take the classes you don’t get the next semester.

Class Registration Is Stressful But It's Time To Relax

This week has been chaotic. Regular classes and assignments are piling up, as the semester comes to an end. On top of an overbearing workload, we have to register for fall classes. I don’t know about you, but I am slightly freaking out. For a lot of us, our class schedules for the fall semester are concrete. We cannot change them because our future plans will be drastically transformed. We think, “If I don’t get into this class, I can’t take the next level class when I want to, and my plan is all messed up.” With this kind of thinking, all kinds of stress can enter your life. For me, I decided this week to declare a double minor and go on a study abroad trip. Of course, I am not confident it will all work out, but I am going to work my hardest to achieve my goals, and you can too.

If you do not get into the classes you needed for the fall semester, don’t worry. Your entire future is not foiled. Switching classes to another semester is perfectly okay. All that matters is that you take the class before you graduate. I know I will probably not get into all the classes I want. A solution to this predicament could be to have a plan A schedule and a plan B schedule. Therefore, if you do not get into your first choice classes, you can immediately register for your second choice.

With registration just next Thursday, remember to relax and that you can take the classes you don’t get the next semester. As the end of the semester is rapidly approaching, I encourage you to work your hardest to end feeling proud and accomplished. Try to plan out your next few semesters now with a plan and a backup plan. By doing this, we can eliminate stress and put our goals on paper, giving us something to strive for. So, don’t worry! And let’s get work done!

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.

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.

Top 10 Reasons My School Rocks!

Why I Chose a Small School Over a Big University.

I was asked so many times why I wanted to go to a small school when a big university is so much better. Don't get me wrong, I'm sure a big university is great but I absolutely love going to a small school. I know that I miss out on big sporting events and having people actually know where it is. I can't even count how many times I've been asked where it is and I know they won't know so I just say "somewhere in the middle of Wisconsin." But, I get to know most people at my school and I know my professors very well. Not to mention, being able to walk to the other side of campus in 5 minutes at a casual walking pace. I am so happy I made the decision to go to school where I did. I love my school and these are just a few reasons why.
