for those of you who don't know, shopping week happens the the first week of school and is a time for students to attend various classes before they have to get their study cards signed with their actual course selections at the end of the week. shopping week is generally a fun time because people can go to many classes (or no classes at all). it tends to be slightly overwhelming because:
- there are many good classes during the same time slots. (this is less true when you are just looking at computer sciences classes, but it happens there as well.)
- many (maybe most) professors begin assigning work during this time.
- there are many people going to many classes, so especially in humanities courses that seem interesting it is very crowded an difficult to get a seat.
