Second Year Experience
Your second (sophomore) year is an important time in your undergraduate experience. You have made the transition to college life and now have new opportunities and challenges which can be both exciting and sometimes anxiety-producing. This year you will need to formally declare your major and complete your mid-point eportfolio. We encourage you to meet with your advisor and map out the rest of your experience at Westminster including internships, study abroad, undergraduate research, service learning and leadership opportunities in addition to your academic course work and requirements.
The Westminster Second Year Experience consists of many departments and programs designed to help second year students explore and find direction, make connections and get experience.
