The dreaded 3 p.m. pick time. Will there even be any classes left to sign up for? Will I have to take all 8 a.m. classes?
A late registration time is frustrating, but don’t give up hope! Sometimes really great surprises can come out of the last slots. Here are a couple of examples of late registration times turning into blessings in disguise.
“My favorite schedule so far”
“[I had a 3 pm pick time and] I felt that I was not going to get any of the classes that I had planned for and wanted. I also had to make about three different schedule options which wasn’t fun, but made me feel a little better.
My schedule turned out really well, actually. I really focused on getting the best teachers I could and made that a priority of time because I knew I could get used to time and it worked out really well. I tried to keep an open mind and I managed to have a good amount of free time in between classes which I didn’t want at first but ended up loving.”

“Ended up with a good group of friends”
“I ended up with a good group of friends in my classes. We’ve all become pretty close. I even had two classes back to back end up in the same room which is sweet.”

“The Boss is great”
“I was one of the last people to actually go to the computers and register for classes. So, [the 4:40-5:30 management class] was the only option I had for management, and I had to do that because of my major. And I was like ‘oh man, that’s gonna stink’, ya know? Because I have it until 5:30, but the professor is actually my favorite teacher now. So, it’s good.”
“We call our management teacher the boss. I’ve heard people say, ‘aww it’s such a bummer that this class is so late at night, but the boss is great, so it’s fine being here this late’”.

“I enjoy them so much”
“My schedule only worked with all night labs. But I enjoy them so much more than I think I would day labs. I feel like I have a lot more time during the day.”
