So by now many of you have found out that you’ve been accepted into Illinois, so congratulations, you did it, great job! But now comes the work. Getting into a major university is an accomplishment in of itself, and you should be very proud of yourselves for that, however life doesn’t end here. Now you have to prove that all that hard work you put into getting in here wasn’t a fluke. One of the most important things you have to do in order to be prepared for those classes come this fall, is of course set up your schedule! In this process, you will meet with advisers who will set you on a path, and guide you through it so that you are able to find all the classes that you want and need for your major and electives, and to graduate.
A tool that I found pretty early, on that helped me a lot to set up a schedule with ease, was this site called scheedule.com. On scheedule.com you can log in with whatever college you attend, and the site will have access to all of the classes that are available to you there. From there, it sets up a weekly calendar that will show you by the hour, where your classes lay on any given day. They will give you the the times, the section numbers, and the CRNs for each class, so when you finally do have everything set up just the way you want it, you can just input those numbers in without having to find all the classes again separately. It’s a very useful site, that has always made the stress a picking out classes much easier, and I know it’ll work for you new Illini as well!
Until next time,
