What am I doing wrong? I can't seem to be able to find the fault in this. Treehouse says: Unexpected identifier.

I've compared the code to other solutions people posted around here and I can't figure out if it's a mistake in the logic of the code or just a syntax error.

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';
        }
    }
  get major() {
        return this._major;
    } 

  set major(major) {

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


var student = new Student(3.9, 60);

It's a syntax error: your object isn't closed--there should be a closing brace for your object before the student variable:

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';
        }
    }
  get major() {
        return this._major;
    } 

  set major(major) {

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

var student = new Student(3.9, 60);
