Seminar enrollment. If you have pre-registered for a seminar, be sure to show up on the first day of class in order reserve your slot. Also: Keep in mind that you do not need to be pre-registered in order to enroll in a seminar. Most History seminars have at least a few spaces open at the moment, and several have many open spaces.
