EXPLORE sophoMORE Program

This program is designed to help sophomores focus on uncovering their identities, communities, and purpose through intentional, small-group dialogue and a self-driven project. It also provides an opportunity to connect with alumni mentors and practice - as well as form - interpersonal relationships.

Built off of research around the sophomore experience at higher education institutes across the U.S., EXPLORE sophoMORE focuses on the key areas students need support with during their transitional time from "first year student who is just trying to survive" to "upperclass student who has it figured out":

  • Identity (who am I?)
  • Community (who do I care about and belong with?)
  • Purpose (who do I want to become and why?)
