Picking College Courses

When selecting your classes for college there are a lot of things you need to consider before you pick out your schedule for the year. These things include whether or not you will be working while in school. Whether you are a morning person or a night person because that can have a huge effect on your schedule and you wouldn’t even realize it until you’re taking your classes. For the most part, picking out your classes mainly depends on your availability level.

I say for the most part, because for one of my classes it has online lectures, I don’t have to actually be in the class in order to attend it, which is one of the best parts of having a class that offers online lecture. This allows me to watch the class at any given time throughout the week and it also makes it easier for me to get other things done that I need to do ahead of time.

One tip I definitely recommend before picking out your classes is to meet with your academic advisor. It is very easy to make an appointment with an academic advisor and they offer amazing advice as well as what classes you should be taking each semester. For me personally I have grown quite fond of my academic advisor, and I usually tend to see him and talk to him a lot about not only my classes, but other things that I have going on at school as well and in my personal life. It’s good to try to befriend your academic advisor because if you do what I did, you will make a friend in the process as well as someone who has a real interest in helping you pick out a great schedule. Since my academic advisor is a UCF alumni, he tells me who are the easier as well as harder professors while picking out my schedule with me.
