The Savvy Sophomore Checklist

  • If you haven’t done so already, you should declare your major this year. Visit your major department to meet with a faculty advisor, or set up an appointment with your Advisement dean if you’re still not sure what to major in. Make an appointment at The Career Center for a career assessment. Keep in mind: You must declare a major prior to earning 60 credits.
  • If you haven’t started your language requirement (if applicable), this is the semester to start hablar español/le fait de parler le français/日本語を話, etc.
  • Start your summer 2018 internship search this fall. Being first in the queue will work to your advantage.
  • Want to study abroad? The fall semester is the time to look at your options for study abroad opportunities.
  • If you’re pre-health or pre-law and haven’t met with a pre-professional advisor, call the Center for University Advisement for an appointment.
  • Visit The Career Center and meet with a career counselor. Don’t wait until your senior year, as you will miss out on a lot of programs, events and opportunities!
  • Join a club or organization, or step up to a leadership position in a club or organization you joined last year.
