Hi Sophomores!

I want to help you to thrive, not just survive during your sophomore year. I am available to meet with you to help navigate your sophomore year by connecting you with college resources, faculty, staff and sophomore peer mentors.  My door is always open to meet and talk whether you need help with figuring out Connections, exploring possible majors and minors, study abroad opportunities, or faculty led summer programs – and of course, academic advising.

No matter what the situation is, feel free to make an appointment by calling the Filene Center at 508 286-8215. I really want to meet you so come by and introduce yourself so we can get to know one another.
