Sophomore Advising

In your sophomore year, you will start to explore the concentrations and whether or not you will have any majors or minors outside of the Carroll School.  You will also start thinking about studying abroad and the many considerations that will shape your decision—where to go, when to go, what to study.  Using the 4-Year Course Plan that you created in Portico, you will be able to map out how this will all fit into your schedule.  Outside of the classroom, you are probably continuing to get involved in clubs and activities and may start taking on leadership roles.

  • Faculty Advisor:  You will have an assigned individual faculty advisor in the Carroll School. Most sophomores are still exploring their concentration options so your faculty advisor assigned to you might not be in your concentration area.

  • Peer Advisors: You will have access to the E&Y Peer Advisors who will hold weekly drop-in hours.

  • Sophomore Class Advisor: Erica Graf, Associate Director, is available to meet with sophomores to talk about courses, studying abroad, or other questions.

  • Advising Events:
  • Dean’s Office: Many decisions regarding study abroad, course of study, and how to best spend extracurricular time emerge in the sophomore year.  To help with some of these questions, the Associate Dean’s office offers drop-in hours in Fulton 360 on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, 1:00-3:00 pm as well as Dean’s Coffee every Thursday, 1:00-3:00 pm in Fulton Honors Common.
  • Office of International Programs: If you are interested in studying abroad, the best place to start is to stop by the Office of International Programs at the Hovey House to browse the Resource Library and meet with and Advising Assistant.
  • Career Exploration Resources: You are also encouraged to start reflecting on your strengths and interests and learn about career path options.  Resources for this process include the Career Center, Halftime Retreat, and Amy Donegan who serves as the Associate Director for Career Advising.
