• Second Year Experience Communities

Second Year Experience (SYE) communities offer you the chance to explore opportunities for leadership and involvement, starting with an exclusive leadership retreat in the fall.

Being a part of one of these communities will offer you opportunities to make meaningful connections with other second-year students, while also helping you find a sense of group belonging.


Where are SYE communities located?
