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 will likely not be in your concentration area.
- Sophomore Class Advisor: You are strongly encouraged to meet with Erica Graf, the sophomore class advisor. Erica advises students on maximizing the academic and extracurricular resources within the university as well as studying abroad.
- Senior Peer Advisors: You will have access to Senior Peer Advisors who will hold weekly drop-in hours.
- Advising Events:
- Study Abroad Information Session in September
- Concentration Day in October
- Peer Advising at Dean’s Coffee during registration in November & April
- Ernst & Young Career Boot Camp
- 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 p.m. as well as Dean’s Coffee every Thursday, 1:00-3:00 p.m. 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.
