Sophomore Year Experience

Heads Up, Sophomores!

Give or take a few credit hours, it’s the second quarter of your college career. What’s your game plan? A sports analogy may or may not work for you, but the goal of the Sophomore Year Experience (SYE) program is to help you to make the most of your second year at Salisbury University. Though events will bear the SYE brand, SYE is not something you just show up for. The real SYE is what you decide to do with the next year of your life. As any college grad will tell you, this is a great time. For many of you, it’s a gateway to adulthood, with opportunities for personal growth, community involvement and professional development.

Sophomore Year Experience 2018

SYE is a program designed to: 1) maximize the quality of opportunities available to students during their second year at SU 2) provide the support and assistance needed for students to make a smooth transition and be successful during their second year and 3) acquaint sophomores with the variety of opportunities that their college career offers through academic programs and related services that are available across campus and in the community.
