Welcome to the Second Year Experience Program!

Hey Sophomores!  Welcome to the Second Year Experience page.  We're here to help you through your second year at UWL.  The reason why we're called "Second Year Experience" is because some of you might actually be juniors (or still first-year students) as determined by credit hours, but you're all in your second year at UWL.  We know that we throw a lot of information at your as you begin your time at UWL (at START and at New Student Orientation) and that you probably don't remember all of it.  We also know that you're probably thinking about different things now than you what you were thinking about as you started.  That's where we come in!

The Second Year Experience Program assists second-year students in exploring the critical issues and tasks that are unique to the second year of college.  The program provides support for second-year students by connecting them to peers, faculty, staff, and campus resources, enhancing their academic and professional success. The program also helps to build a community of support outside of the classroom, aiding in their self-exploration, exposing them to diverse perspectives, and helping define academic and co-curricular goals.
