Sophomore Year Experience (SYE)

The sophomore year presents a unique set of needs as students progress through their second year of college.  SYE programs and traditions are designed to support sophomore students throughout the year as they make important decisions and continue to build connections.  These programs will enhance the connections you have made with SUMMIT Advisor, faculty, staff, alumnae, and your classmates, celebrate important milestones and connect you to important resources on campus.  We look forward to seeing you at these events!
