Advisor

Advising week is getting closer and I think it is important to prepare yourself for it!

Here is my checklist of things you should do:

1. Know your advisor’s name and make sure you set up an appointment with them.

2. Know your major requirements:

For Undergraduates visit* http://www.fontbonne.edu/academics/undergraduate/

For Graduates visit*  http://www.fontbonne.edu/academics/graduate/

Click on your major and then click on course requirements, print them and highlight the ones you have already taken; then take a look at what is missing.

Still undecided? No worries! Just browse through the majors and read the descriptions, maybe there are some that spark your interest and others that you definitely would never pursue, have fun!

*Considering a minor? A certificate? Visit the links and scroll down, click on the program that interests you and read to find out if you want to pursue it!

3. Look at the course schedule and find the courses you want to take next semester, make a tentative schedule taking into consideration if you are working, commuting or if you don’t want to take 8am classes! (No one ever does!)

Find the course schedule here:

4. Write down any questions you have for your advisor! Maybe you want to change your major, or you want more information about adding a minor. Any question you have is valid, so write it down and take it to your appointment.

So it’s time to pick classes for spring. I’m only a freshman in my first semester but there are a few things I’ve already picked up about choosing which courses I want to take next semester.

I still find it hard to believe that I’m almost finished with my first semester of college and I can say I’ve never been happier. Although there are still a few things about being a college student that I haven’t gotten completely used to. One of those would be registering for classes. It’s not that I find it difficult… just different.

There are a few things I have found to be helpful as I planned for next year. First, it’s important to know what time of the day you like taking class. I have learned that it’s hard for me to get up for a class that is early in the morning. I find it hard to get to my 9 AM class so therefore an 8 AM class is probability not the best idea for me.  Also I find that talking to my advisor helped me out so much. I made a separate appointment with my advisor so I could ask some questions I had regarding my major. I found it was very helpful to speak with her before advising week to give me some times to think about my future.

I guess to sum all this up, I found planing for my classes to be kinda… well, fun. Maybe I’m a nerd (haha) but I’m excited to see how next semester goes. And I wish everyone good luck as they pick their classes!
