Registration is stressful. Whether you’re a freshman or a senior, there’s always the impending fear you won’t get the classes you were hoping for. Though, as a freshman, for some odd reason, I wasn’t too worried. In hindsight, I probably should have been a little more concerned.
As I sat in my communication class, my professor asked us how registration that morning had gone. And that’s when I realized, I had forgotten to register. I very quickly opened up CNU Live to take a look. Sure enough, all of my first-choice classes had been long-since filled. Panic ensued, but only for a moment.
I took a look at what classes I needed and cross-referenced that with which ones were open. With the CNU Live interface, this is an extremely easy task. I was very grateful to find there were still many, many amazing classes still open for registration. While CNU is a small campus, there is no shortage of incredible courses to take and learn from. In addition, all students have the option to request an “override” to get into a class if they feel it is absolutely essential they take the class.
Hopefully, next semester I won’t forget my registration date, but even if I do it’s nice to know that there will always be plenty of options for me and everyone else.
