Not sure what I'm doing here.

creating_setters.js
class Student {
    constructor(gpa, credits){
        this.gpa = gpa;
        this.credits = credits;
    }

    stringGPA() {
        return this.gpa.toString();
    }

    get level() {
        if (this.credits > 90 ) {
            return 'Senior';
        } else if (this.credits > 60) {
            return 'Junior';
        } else if (this.credits > 30) {
            return 'Sophomore';
        } else {
            return 'Freshman';
        }
    } 

  set major(major){
    if(this.level === 'Junior' || this.level === 'Senior'){
       this._major = major;
  } else{
        this._major = 'None';
  }
}

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

The setter at the bottom of your class is not properly closed with a curly brace. Have a close look at it, maybe copy your class into the JS console in your browser and see what happens. That's what I did. It's a very useful tool for catching errors. But once you add that last curly brace in, your code works fine. Happy coding!
