If I decide I want to change my class schedule after the NSA event can I do that?

Yes, you can change your schedule, but you will need the help of your undergraduate academic counselor to do so. Contact your academic counselor (email is best) with details about the changes you'd like, or to explore class options, and he or she will help you to register for appropriate new classes.
