    Malvern's Bio:
    I have heard that the average human being uses 10% of their brain's potential. Whether that's true or not, this blog is a mirror of at least part of my brain's functionality and activity. It is an outlet through which I share my experiences and escapades here at CSS. I hope that in between the mixed metaphors and rambling in my posts, you find something valuable. I have an overwhelming interest learning new things and expanding my horizons (which is why I am here). Wait, I just lost my train of thought... Welcome to my 'Pensieve' ~ thinking out loud..

Brace Yourselves -Class Registration Is Coming!

We are almost at that time when almost the entire school will be staying up late to register for classes over the course of a week. It starts with seniors (seniority?), then juniors, followed by sophomores with the freshmen trailing after everyone! Talking about classes, have you ever been told to pick ‘fun’ classes during course registration? In case you didn’t know, ‘fun classes’ are classes that fall under the subject(s) you enjoy most. They do not have to be less work, rather they should be enjoyable work. This is my mindset as Spring course registration approaches. Most students too, I believe, are already thinking ahead and planning for the next semester.

For seniors, this means the final lap; for juniors, this means taking electives in their intended major; for sophomores and perhaps freshman, this means striking a balance between required and elective classes. So what are required classes? These can be General Education requirements or classes that you have to take before you can take any advanced upper level class. In Computer Science, you might have to take a programming class before you can pick up Software Design or Artificial Intelligence.

If a class is not a requirement, and it seems interesting or covers some topics that excite you, I strongly advise you take that class – after consulting with your advisor of course. College is the time to explore and discover new worlds within the classroom. Oftentimes, some classes outside our major challenge us more and equip us with knowledge and skills more. As you register for your classes, make it your priority to sign up for the required ones first, then take a bucnh of 0 credit or any other class of your interest so that you have some kind of balance on your schedule.

Good luck!
