This was the time in our lives that would determine our fate for the upcoming semester. It was a struggle to find classes that would work well with a job and study schedule. The registration process was dreaded by all. You could see it on everyone's face at Hofheinz Pavilion. Anna Rodriguez said, "You have to wait a long time, and the longer you wait, the more nervous you become about the classes. It mentally tires you out. One begins to worry about one's schedule more than one should." Blanca Silva said, "Why bother with social security numbers when practically anyone who missed their number earlier can come later in the day to add and drop making the wait during priority even longer." "The worst experience I had was when I stood outside in the heat for an hour before I went inside. I proceeded into a drop/add line, and found the class was closed," said Jeff Foley. Many students found that their stress level rose to an unbelievably high level during this time. Many students felt that add and drop was stressful because sometimes you end up rearranging your whole schedule for one required class. After the registration process had ended, students were faced with other dilemmas. Tom Car- rizal said, "I was dropped from all of my classes because of library fines. I spent a whole week running from one dean's office to the next trying to get re-instated. Being dropped put a tremendous amount of stress on me. At that time I did not know what to do. I thought about not going to school for a semester and I felt like 1 was fighting a useless battle." With all of the confusion of having some or all of your classes cancelled, filled to decent capacity, and/or offered at awkward times, planning a schedule was a nightmare of frustrations. -Sonia Ramirez u After realizing that some of their classes have been closed, students waited patiently in line to decide which classes they would take now.
