Possibilities & Potential of your Sophomore Year, Jan. 15, 2012

Are you a sophomore? Pondering lots of choices, like majors, internships, possible careers, study abroad, and research opportunities? The University of Puget Sound would like to give you some tools (and also pizza) to maximize your possibilities and potential at the first ever Sophomore Event on January 15 from 1pm to 5pm.

Bill Grace, author of Sharing the Rock, will open with a keynote on students as stewards of the common good, followed by an afternoon of session options ranging from big picture exploration to immediately applicable tools. The library will participate in the event, offering two sessions on research management tools that will get you ready for extensive research and upper division courses.

The sophomore year is one where you make several decisions about your Puget Sound experience. They include, but are not limited to, declaring your major, reconnecting with classmates and friends, searching for internship and research opportunities, improving time management, and learning about study abroad opportunities. This can be a time of great joy and pride along with stress and feeling lost. In most cases, sophomores will experience a combination of emotions.

We invite you to join us to discover the Possibilities and Potential of your sophomore year. You will hear from guest speakers and campus experts on broad topics that we are calling Common Good Sessions to specific topics that we are calling Charting the Future Sessions. These sessions are designed to assist you in solidifying and focusing on self-awareness, relationships, and skills necessary for making academic, career, and co-curricular choices.

We hope to see you January 15th!
