For Sophomores

Focus: Planning and preparation.

Revise your resume.

Take the experiences from freshman year and incorporate them into your document. As always, the Career Peer Advisors are here to help.

Discuss experiential learning with your academic advisor and the CSO staff

To be successful in your major, you need to do more than take the right classes. You need to apply what you’re learning outside the classroom in a variety of ways. Your advisor and staff members in the CSO can help connect you to opportunities and assist you in making future plans.
