I've had this plan for a while that I should graduate a semester early, just because I can. Why not get out of the undergrad world three months early, if it's doable? And, up until today, that was my main plan. It meant that I had a very tight schedule planned, with very busy and challenging semesters ahead (each with 15-17 credit hours and no room for fun electives). Yesterday, that began to change.

And then I noticed a poster about Art History minors today in the fine arts building on campus. I greatly enjoy studying art and its history, and it happens to be extremely relevant to the field of Medieval Studies. I have already taken two courses in Art History, am signed up for another this Fall, and plan to take one next Spring. I checked the requirements; I'd only have to take one more Art History class to add it as a minor. Would that be another reason, perhaps, to stay for one more semester?
So I added an Art History minor. Just got the email from the Registrar, informing me that the change is now official. I'm pretty excited about it.
