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. We aim to connect you with the resources on campus that can help make that happen! 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.

These are just a few of the things they can do as they continue on their path to graduation.
