Now, you're ready to declare a major and develop a plan for your final three years of college. The Second Year Experience aims to meet the unique needs of second year students. We want to support the development of your academic and career plans, and provide you with life skills for both academic success on campus and professional success in internships, placements, and after graduation.

You can get involved in Sophomore Council to suggest programming and organize events for fellow second year students, you can apply to be a Peer Mentor for incoming freshmen, or you can reach out for information on scholarships, jobs, professional skills building, study abroad, and much more that is available throughout campus.
