This is my first year, and I picked my five classes as soon as I was able to.

They are:

-Beginners Defense Against the Dark Arts
-Zombie Survival 101
-Care Of Magical Creatures
-Harry Potter: Family Studies

Only my DADA class is a full year, the rest are one term.
This way, I will not always be doing homework as I am in college as well.

LOVE all my classes, can't wait to take more!!
Keep on dreaming, even if it breaks your heart!! xoxo <3

Well since I'm a first year student, it was so hard for me to pick my classes! So here's the list I came up with:

-HOL 101: Orientation Class (confirmed)
-Charms (confirmed)
-Healing Herbology (confirmed)
-Languages 101 (confirmed)
-Beginner's defense against the Dark Arts (unconfirmed)

I'm really hoping I'll be confirmed for my fifth class, because I really want to take it!
I also originally signed up to HOL for the Parseltongue class, but realized it's still unavailable :(

Anais, sounds like you and I have very similar interests in classes as we are in three classes together!

I am in HOL 101, Languages 101, Beginners Defense Against the Dark Arts, Muggle Puzzles, and HOL Quidditch. I chose HOL 101 and HOL Quidditch as introductions to specific parts of HOL (and how they differ from other communities I was in), Beginners DADA because of the professor, Languages 101 to practice my Finnish, and Muggle Puzzles because the puzzles involved are fun (even if these word searches have driven me pretty crazy). I am also looking forward to seeing the Parseltongue class return; I looked at the old syllabus and it seemed fascinating!

I am confirmed for all four classes I signed up for. Those four are:

Beginners Defense Against the Dark Arts
Word Magic
Care of Magical Creatures

And three I'd be taking if I really did go to Hogwarts. :D

It's my first year at HOL, and I took 5 classes for this term, and already confirmed
- Potions For Beginners
- Wand-Making
- Ancient Runes
- Fantastic Beast
- History of Magic

I've done my first HW and EC of Potions for Beginners, and will try to do History of Magic. But, I read the site that the assignment #1 of this class is due between February 2 - February 28. It seems that the site is not up to date. I want to ask this problem to the Prof, but the class forum of HoM is still empty. Anyone can help me? Please let me know whom I should contact to ask this problem?

I originally signed up for only 3 classes, then caved and signed up for two more. I couldn't help it. They're all confirmed, now I just need to get working on my homework and extra credit.
This term is:
Beginner Defense Against the Dark Arts
Famous Witches and Wizards
Fantastic Beasts
Potions for Beginners

Very excited about all my classes, hopefully I'll get quills in all of them. :D

Threw caution to the wind by signing up for 5 but I barely whittled it down to that!

I'm taking Confronting Your Boggart, Famous Witches and Wizards, Magical Greek Mythology, Poetry Writing, and The Battle of Hogwarts - and OWLs, of course, being a fifth year. A couple are revamped versions of classes that I've meant to take in the past, and the rest are new classes that I thought would be a lot of fun or are very interesting! I was really tempted by a few others - like Ive's Potions class, Muggle Studies for Beginners by Kyrie, and Kennilworthy's Kitchen by Arielle. Hopefully they'll be around in future terms. :)

This term I’m taking:

- Confronting Your Boggart
- Death Eaters 101
- Poisons
- Quidditch Chronicles

At this point I have a few assignments half way done. I tend to put off RL homework and work on HOL homework instead. ^_^

This term I'm taking

Confronting Your Boggart (I always love Scarlet's classes.)
Disney Studies: The Classics (I loveeee Disney!!)
Kennilworthy's Kitchen (Yay food!)
Marvellous Musical Theatre: Act 1 (Musicals <3)
Muggle Studies: Fandom (I feel like this is the perfect class for me.)

This term will be interesting with taking five classes, assisting three, and teaching three... in addition to teaching high school students during the day and college students in the evening. >> It's a good thing I like school...?
