Sophomore Year Experience Timeline
While each student will surely have a unique 'sophomore year experience' at Haverford, we hope the following information and resources will serve as a guide along the journey.
Fall - Semester I
Meet with your faculty advisor to discuss your options for choosing a major - remember, you must declare a major by the end of your sophomore year.
Interested in spending a semester or a year abroad as part of your Haverford education? Study Abroad! Don't forget to attend the Student Abroad Fair in October!
It's never too early to research fellowship and scholarship opportunities: Committee on College Honors.
Over the winter break, consider doing an internship or volunteering. Both the Career Development Office and the Center for Peace and Global Citizenship know of such opportunities, or you may set-up an experience on your own!
Spring - Semester II
Continue to meet with your faculty advisor as needed.
Explore summer opportunities such as jobs, internships (domestic and abroad), fellowships, and volunteer and service opportunities. The CDO website is a great place to start!
Finalize all plans for studying abroad, with Dean Mancini, if you will do so in your junior year!
