A day or week of classes in college is structured quite differently than in high school. You won't have the same courses each day, and class times will vary in the morning, afternoon, and evening. Outside of class, you'll have plenty of free time for studying, socializing, working out, and participating in campus activities.

Each sample schedule is built around the University Core Curriculum and introductory courses in the major, with room for making choices to fit your individual interests. As you work with an academic advisor to build your own class schedule, you'll find it to be similar to—but not exactly like—the samples provided here.
