Second Year Experience

The Second Year Experience Program was launched in the Fall of 2012 by the Division of Student Affairs as a part of the university’s retention plan for sophomore and transfer students. The mission of the program is to support second-year students, thus increasing retention rates among this population. To achieve this mission, the program connects students to activities across campus.
