Second Year Experience
Since you’ve now transitioned to the advising area for your major, you can concentrate on academic requirements and progressing to junior status of 56 credits, putting you one step closer to graduation. To help you make the most of this year, the professional academic advisers have created a program called the Second Year Experience (SYE). SYE is a series of workshops, events and advising designed to maximize engagement in your second year of college.
The mission of the Second Year Experience (SYE) Program at Oakland University is to facilitate student involvement and continued academic success in second year students as they progress through their degree programs. This is accomplished through professional academic advising and other outreach initiatives that encourage students to participate in targeted engagement areas.
The five areas of engagement that you will receive communications on throughout the year are:
- Major/minor exploration
- Major engagement
- Career/research engagement
- Campus engagement
- Community engagement
