Each year, around the end of January and the beginning of February, students are required to sign up for their courses for next year. The reason the school administrators make them sign up for classes so early is because they need time to process all these course requests and assign students the classes they want. Every year, I hear complains about how it is too early to sign up for classes. So…
BearingNews asked students: How do you feel about signing up for classes at the end of January?
