One of the many perks of heading off to college is being able to make your own schedule. Long gone are the days of your schedule being dictated by the bell, and here to stay are many more opportunities for flexibility and responsibility.

It’s extremely important to be smart in making these decisions. Here is some of our best advice for crafting your college course schedule.

1 Look at campus maps.

Don’t make a rookie mistake and book back-to-back classes that are across campus from one another. Aside from many colleges having strict lateness policies, rushing around and running through campus can be difficult, especially during bad weather or crummy temperatures.

2 Mind your major.

While you’re probably tempted to knock off all the liberal arts requirements early, be sure you’re taking at least one or two courses that are specific to your major so you get a real taste for the content before it’s too late to switch.

3 Don’t knock night classes.

In high school, you may have felt as though there was nothing worse than having to be at school come nightfall — but in college, it can be clutch. Night classes are often offered for longer class sessions, which means only having class once or maybe twice per week. While three-hour classes can sound long, they typically feature a break in between and can go by quite quickly if you’re engaged in the content. Perhaps consider saving the courses you are most excited for and then explore opportunities for these as longer, cluster classes.

4 Talk to your roommate.

If you’re both late risers, but one of you signs up for an 8 a.m. it can ruin your ability to sleep in. If you and your roommate find that you both are either early birds or night owls, you can both make an effort to schedule your courses accordingly.
