Sophomore Year Opening Dinner


The Sophomore Year Experience begins with the Sophomore Class Opening Dinner, a formal occasion to bring sophomores together as a group, celebrate the start of the academic year, and initiate conversations about vocation. The 2015 Opening Dinner is scheduled for September 15 at 6:30 p.m. in the KAV. This summer each rising sophomore will receive an invitation in the mail. Please look for the invitation at your home address and send the response card promptly.

In 2014, 164 members of sophomore class and 33 faculty/staff members attended the event. 94% of students said that the dinner provided a positive "kick-off" to their sophomore year and helped them recognize the importance of the sophomore year for their academic and personal development. 92% of students said that the keynote address and/or after-dinner discussions helped them begin and/or continue exploring questions of vocation and life purpose. When asked to identify their main goals for the sophomore year, students indicated particular interest in the following: study abroad, internships, making connections with faculty and staff, deciding on majors, second majors, and minors, improving academic success, figuring out who they want to be, and getting involved in clubs/activities.
