Sophomore Programs

The Pathfinder Program
Explore, Excel, Succeed

What is The Pathfinder Program?
The goal of The Pathfinder Program is to assist second year students in persisting through to the third year and address the issues associated with the “sophomore slump”. The primary focus of The Pathfinder Program is major exploration and career development. This will be done through exposure to career and major areas of interest, workshops and programs, and promotion of success oriented strategies with emphasis on academic, career, and cultural development.
The Pathfinder Program includes access to the CARES Sophomore Counselor through individual and group Academic Progress Sessions (APS) scheduled throughout the semester. The Pathfinder Program works in collaborations with many programs and departments throughout campus in an effort to expose participants to a variety of campus resources and programming.
Two highlight components of The Pathfinder Program are the Major Talk series and the Take The Lead Leadership Conference. The Major Talks series presents a re-occurring forum for students to gain information about different majors in the colleges across campus and related professions. Take The Lead provides students with an opportunity of activities and workshops in a mini-conference format to support their personal and professional development as current and future leaders.
