Getting unexpected token for colon in the gpa property line

Why am I getting 'unexpected token :' for this code? Seems like a bug in the quiz.

creating_class.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa) {
    this.gpa: gpa
  }
}

The colon syntax isn't quite right in this case. But that's only because you're defining an class constructor. In order to set this equal to a property simply assign the value with the equality (=) operator as you would any other variable. :-)

Figured it out -- replace colon with equal sign
