Find a direction  

The Sophomore Experience is about helping your find a direction: 

  • If you've already chosen your major but are unsure how to pursue internships or careers, we'll show you how. 
  • If you're unsure which major to choose, we'll give you tips on making a decision based on your strengths, interests, values and passions. 
  • If you're already set on your course, The Sophomore Experience also offers valuable information about how to network, create a strong LinkedIn presence and negotiate - a skill you'll use time and again while still in college and beyond.   

This 24-hour conference-style event will introduce you to ideas, concepts and skills in a fun and interactive environment that encourages questions and emphasizes teamwork. The speakers and sessions will provide practical tools to assist with your decision-making process as you consider the next 2.5 years of college and beyond.  

Some of the skills you'll learn include:  

  • Knowing your strengths
  • Networking
  • Choosing a major and internship that suits your interests and strengths
  • Negotiation skills
  • Online career search/research skills 
  • Finding an internship
