At Tulane, we celebrate everything that sophomores have and will accomplish and seek to support them every step of the way. While the first-year experience is frequently one of finding your sea legs and developing daily life management skills, the sophomore experience is often a year for crossing new personal boundaries and thresholds. It is a milestone year of change and self-discovery. It is a year of determining your academic journey, as you declare your major, and it is a year of personal development, as group dynamics and self-perception evolve.
You may find yourself asking: how will I my intellectual path take shape at Tulane? How can I make decisions about who I am and who I will be while grappling with other people’s expectations? How can I connect and align with groups larger than myself, grow emotionally and spiritually, and find deeper meaning to my journey? How can I maintain control over my path and engage in purposeful self-definition?
You are not alone in asking these questions. The Office of Retention and Student Success is here to connect you with resources, services, and celebrations to assist you in fostering a sense of community, support, and purpose.
