It's that time of year again! 
Class registration! All of you should have received an email with a scheduled registration appointment. It's important to use the time before your appointment to clear any holds and take time to prep your potential schedule! (& BACK UPS!)
If the class you want fills up before you get a chance to register, email the instructor expressing your interest in the class and they'll likely let you join! If you're passionate about being in a class then fight for it!
One pro tip to underclassmen is to research your instructors! Sit in on classes and find their work online. SVA has over 1000 amazing instructors and it's important to find the ones best tailored to your interests and learning style! You can see a full faculty list here!
