This morning at approximately 8:57 a.m., I registered for my last semester of classes at Gardner-Webb…How’d did this happen? Where did the time go? When did I become this ‘adult’ person? These are the type of questions that seem to rack my brain more and more frequently as that May graduation date approaches.

But what if I am not ready to leave?
This semester has been filled with practical classes for my majors, productive track practices, and dozens of spontaneous social events–including one trip to Vegas! But my next and last semester will be even more iconic and spectacular in scheme.. let me explain.
First off, my classes are going to be bomb diggity. I have a scuba diving course that actually allows me to get my diving certification at the end of the semester. No big deal. I am taking an outdoor adventure class, which consist of canoeing, camping, orienteering, and sea kayaking. No big deal. I also have a CPR/First Aid class and a military fitness course. No big deal. And if that was not enough, my other three academic classes are simply supplemental to my degrees. Bomb, right?

How can you to make your last semester iconic? Simply do what I did: complete all core and required major classes as early as possible in your college career. Take 15-18 hours every semester in your first two years and utilize online summer classes as well. This will give you flexibility your last two years to cherry pick classes and take electives.
If you have any anticipation of going to graduate school, law school, or widespread job hunting, having time to adequately study for graduate tests, write essays, and prepare your resume is crucial to post-grad plans. Give yourself time your last two years to think, intern, and build networks.

GWU is liberal arts school; take AP courses, community college classes, early college opportunities, and most importantly… take a transferable Western Civilization class. The most feared courses at GWU are in the social science department, so prepare beforehand or be ready for the challenge.
College is a whole new academic ballgame; time management and study sessions are required. But trust me when I tell you…it is worth every dime, every application essay, and every college tour. That’s my personal guarantee.
Praise the Lord & pass the peaches,
