SOar Sophomore Program

In partnership with the Sophomore class officers, the Center for Career Development hosts a celebration of Sophomores in Hodson’s Egg and Goose Nest.  This festival style event includes an academic and activity resource fair, a series of interactive sessions to orient students to professional behaviors, and a grand finale including professional dress contests. The goal is to engage more sophomores in professional and experiential work with the Center for Career Development. 

SOar’s festival style activities, directed by upper class students, demonstrate personal and professional social interaction.
