Sophomore Initiatives

Page address:
Starting College?

Welcome to the new sophomore website!

It’s perfectly normal to be experiencing a wide range of emotions
during your sophomore year. You may be anxious about selecting a
major yet excited about all the possibilities of your future. Your
feelings may have to do with both your short-term and
long-term goals, such as what you’re going to major in,
what you should do with the rest of your life, and who
your true friends are. As a result, your sophomore year
will have mountain top as well as valley experiences.
Please take advantage of the website to access
the Sophomore Connection, a newsletter just
for sophomores, as well as many other available
resources that pertain to your unique needs.

The office of First Year Experience can help you
define your career path as well as connect you with
resources on campus that will assist you with the following:

  • choosing and declaring a major
  • registering for classes
  • getting involved
  • studying abroad
  • managing money
  • handling stress
  • creating and maintaining lasting friendships

We'd be happy to meet with you at anytime if you have questions ranging from choosing a major to getting involved on campus. If you'd like to set up an appointment, call the Office of FYE at 507-389-5498.

May your sophomore year be filled with success and joy!
