Sophomore Year Experience

Heads Up, Sophomores!

Give or take a few credit hours, it’s almost the halfway mark of your college career. What’s your game plan? While you might not have all of the answers, the goal of the Sophomore Year Experience (SYE) program is to help you make the most of your second year at Salisbury University. Though events may be geared towards sophomores, these events provide tips, recommendations, and resources that will carry you through the next two years and beyond. These are not just events you show up for, the real SYE is what you decide to do with this next year of your life. As any college grad will tell you, this is a great time filled with ample opportunities. For many of you, it’s a gateway to adulthood, with opportunities for personal growth, community involvement and professional development.
