    Default I can't figure out why i keep getting this error

    It keeps telling me that it can't find the symbol and I don't know why! I had to put all of this in a different class because i originally had it under main method but i couldn't get the radio buttons working so now it is in a different class.
    I imported everything that i needed,set up my text fields, pannels, etc and everything is spelled correctly.
    //---listener
    class ButtonListener implements ActionListener
    {
    public void actionPerformed(ActionEvent event)
    {//if else -> depends on which button has been pressed and which radio button is currently selected.
    //actions go here --
    // first button
    if("first".equals(event.getActionCommand()))
    {
    if(students.isSelected())
    {
    String name = nameField.getText();
    String major = majorField.getText();
    String id = idField.getText();
    It keeps saying it can't find symbol of this which im trying to create a new student which i have a student class that should let me initialize this here!!!!
    Student aStudent = new Student(name,id,major);
    school.addStudent(aStudent);
    textArea.append("Student Added"+"\n");
    }
