Sophomore year you are more comfortable with your surroundings and have started to feel like you belong and here are some thoughts on this point of college:
* Do something a little more outside of what you would normaly do- join a club, sport or group that you have never tried before- you may learn something new about yourself!
* Start thinking about the classes you have enjoyed taking and look into different majors. Check pre-requisites, gpa requirements and units when looking at majors because it could influence what major you decide you want to choose.
* A note here- look at what jobs that type of major feeds in to- it can give you a sense of the skills and classes you will need, but don’t think that because you choose a certain major you can’t do a specific job.
* Start thinking about programs that you might want to do your junior year. Many times bigger programs require applications that need to be turned in your sophmore year.
