It’s almost time to sign up for Spring classes! Make sure that you make an appointment with your advisor to plan out your spring semester here at SMU. Advisors are here to help you and so is your Peer Academic Leader, Hailee Browne. In fact, Hailee is putting on an event Monday, October 24th from 8-10 p.m. in the Mary Hay Lobby. Here, Hailee will serve you up some doughnuts and you can drop in to ask your enrollment questions and learn to read your Degree Progress Report. Hailee’s such a PAL!
If you miss out on this event, never fear. You can always reach out to Hailee at firstname.lastname@example.org and she can help you choose classes that will get your requirements done! Making sure that you take all the right classes is essential to having a great semester and graduating on time.
One thing that I might suggest is taking a class that is “out of the box.” Sometimes you find things you are good at in random places. I, myself, have always been artistic and took a chance on a video art class. It was one of the strangest classes that I have ever encountered, and although it was not my favorite, I wound up being very good at it and I learned how to edit videos. This really proved to me that I could go for my major and helped me when I applied in the following semester. Don’t be afraid to try something new!
Make sure that you look at your requirements when signing up for classes and never be afraid to ask for help!
