Welcome to The Second Year Experience!

The Second Year Experience program has intentionally been created for second-year students. Here you will get the opportunity to connect with other second year students, peer mentors, and faculty/staff that are invested in supporting you! The program is designed to address the unique issues and challenges second year students face and provides support to assist you in making a successful transition from your first year to your second year.

Your second year in college is a unique time -- you've got a year of experience under your belt, have gotten to know the campus, and have begun getting involved. Now that you've adjusted to the college life, the second year is the time to set new goals, find your niche, and immerse yourself in the UWL experience. So, what do you do? 

Our special Second Year Experience Canvas course, addresses some of the unique issues you may face as part of your second year, suggests useful resources, lists some big dates to add to your calendar, and shares special events. Select to self-enroll to the Canvas course by clicking here.
