Sophomore Services

Are you an exploratory sophomore? Exploratory sophomores are General Studies majors who have not declared a specific major, but are exploring their major options with the assistance of a professional academic advisor.

Are you having a stressful time adjusting to college life after your first year experience? If so, the Undergraduate Advising Center has specialized services available especially for you. We understand the challenges that many sophomores experience at the university such as pressure to decide a major, the responsibility of making many decisions on your own, and finding ways to connect to the university. The Undergraduate Advising Center cares about your success and strives to promote an environment that is conducive to meeting the needs of our students.
