This next year can be challenging and we’ve got some ideas for how to get the most out of it. In order to stay on track and finish their degree, most successful sophomores:

  • reflect on their success and identify a future pathway
  • hone their interests and goals

What do students say? 

"This class has helped me in many ways.  It helped me to connect with the services provided on campus. Mostly the counseling center.  It helped me to feel a part of this large campus and even helped me find scholarships that weren’t for incoming freshmen.  The class is great, and I highly recommend it.  It just helped to give me that extra push I needed to focus my energy on finishing."

"This class has helped me become more informed about resources available to me as a student.  This information will help me as I create my personal plan to finish college.  Dr. Wood is a passionate professor who has her best interests in you, the student."
