Why do I get an error on this line?  "SCRIPT5007: Unable to get property '0' of undefined or null reference "
            console.log("Class 1: "+newStudent.Classes[0]);

		function student(firstName,lastName,ssn,dormName)
		{
			this.fname = firstName;
			this.lname = lastName;
			this._ssn = ssn || 0;
			this.classes = [];
			this.dName = dormName || "A Hall";
		};
		
		// Individually add methods to the prototype
		student.prototype.addClasses = function(className, roomNumber) {
			this.classes.push({className: className, roomNumber: roomNumber});
		};

		Object.defineProperty(student.prototype, "fullname", {
			get: function() {
				return this.fname + " " + this.lname;
			}
		});
		
		var newStudent = new student("John","Doe","231-31-1313","jjjjj1111");
		console.log("HELLO WORLD");
		console.log(newStudent.fullname);
		newStudent.addClasses("Algebra", "33B");
		newStudent.addClasses("Geometry", "44B");
		newStudent.addClasses("History", "12B");
		newStudent.addClasses("Sociology", "144C");
		newStudent.addClasses("Biology", "312D");
		newStudent.addClasses("Calculus", "98S");
		newStudent.addClasses("Statistics", "55B");
		
		console.log("Number of classes: " + newStudent.classes.length);
		console.log("Class 1: "+newStudent.Classes[0]);

It's case sensitive - "console.log("Class 1: "+newStudent.Classes[0])" should be console.log("Class 1: "+newStudent.classes[0])

The error is gone but now the console renders "Class 1: [object Object] "

That's another question :)

I guess it's because it does not recognize the object you've inserted.

try printing newStudent.classes[0].className - to get the class name and roomNumber to get the room number

Out of curiosity, I made a web page out of your code and @oferam is right, you needed to 'name' the objects to get them to appear.  How are you seeing the response in the 'console'?
