Sophomore year is a time of imagination, discovery, and refinement. Who am I really? What skills do I need to develop? What fuels my passions? These are important questions to ponder as you move through the milestones of major declaration, choosing an advisor, or deciding to study abroad. As you move from uncertainty to clarity, many people are here to help you.
Sophomore Re-Orientation is a series of information, programming, and workshops designed to help sophomores reflect on who they are and how that sense of self aligns with their academic and social interests. Sponsored by the Office of Academic Deans, Office of Advising and Student Success and Advising, Alumnae Association, Career Development Center and the Division of Student Life.
Join us for the Orientation kick-off event on Monday, September 3, 2018 at 5 pm in the Great Room, Blanchard Hall. Meet your class dean, Alison Hopkins, hear words of wisdom from alumnae, and learn about resources available to help you chart your academic, leadership, and career path at the College.
