In a Boston Globe feature story on the growing popularity of “sophomore year experience’’ programs, Margaret Freije, associate dean of the College of the Holy Cross, Esther Levine, dean of the Class of 2014, and Natalya Krykova ’14, shared their thoughts on why sophomore year—the time students choose majors, study-abroad programs and internships—is a critical time for colleges to offer special programs and advising.
“Frankly, the sophomores are already oriented. They’ve been here for a year,’’ Freije told the Globe. “What we want to do is say, ‘OK, you’ve made it through your transition. Now let’s take stock.’
“Some of them come to college with very specific ideas. Maybe as freshmen they think they’re going to be doctors, and then they discover they don’t like science courses,’’ said Levine. “But as sophomores, they’re more mature, more self-confident. This is when they can come into their own.’’
