Students should pursue courses likely to lead to a major during their first and second years. Completing some of AXLE is valuable, particularly writing, math, and foreign language, but several categories may be completed in junior and senior year.  Here is a link to summary of AXLE for faculty. YES allows searching for courses by AXLE categories, a convenient way to find alternative paths through the curriculum. To find courses in each AXLE category, go to YES, class search, and use “Advanced Search—class attributes".
