Your sophomore experience is a unique and integral part of your academic journey at John Jay. The sophomore experience programs and events are designed to help you make your sophomore year a time to get the skills and experiences you need to reach your academic and career goals.
Sophomore Kickoff is a welcome event to get you ready for the opportunities you have as a sophomore. This is where you can get a head start on planning for scholarships, study abroad, research with faculty, leadership development, paid internships, and other exciting opportunities programs. It’s also a place to connect with other students who are equally committed to their success. See flyer for 2014 kickoff to learn more.
