Unexpected Identifier

Not sure what I'm doing here.

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!
