Welcome to your sophomore year! Sophomore Programs (S’MORES) is a new initiative that is a combination of services, programs, and curricular and co-curricular activities that provides a gateway between student’s college transition and their future aspirations.
S’MORES is designed to help sophomores make good choices on major declaration, learn more about themselves, connect to Rhodes, and explore opportunities. This is accomplished through locating in one place various activities and events appropriate for sophomores, activities planned regularly by offices such as Career Services, Academic Support Services, Student Activities, etc. Also a few specialized events created by S’MORE Programs and Sophomore Class Council.
