More than 20 departments and programs will host advising events March 18-29 as part of a stepped-up effort to help first-year students and sophomores fully explore the opportunities that that lie ahead in their next two or three years at Skidmore.

ExploreMore will make dozens of faculty, staff and upper-class students available for discussions about the creative pathways students may follow on the way to satisfying major and minor course requirements. Another focus will be special opportunities for engagement, such as collaborative research, independent studies, and credit-bearing internships.

“These sessions are specially designed for second semester first-years who are deciding on majors and newly declared sophomores looking for opportunities for the next year,” said Marla Melito, student academic development coordinator. “We’re offering these sessions immediately after spring break so that students are well prepared to make key decisions during Advising Week, which starts March 25. All sophomores especially should be sure to attend sessions for newly declared majors or minors.”

You’ll find a full schedule of ExploreMore events here. Among the highlights:

•    a student-and-faculty-run session in Art History to discuss coursework and internships;

•    a Viennese coffeehouse at which to discuss opportunities both on campus and abroad for majoring and minoring in German;

•    a session on study-abroad opportunities hosted by the Office of Off-Campus Study and Exchanges;

•    two events hosted by the Career Development Center to get students thinking early about their post-Skidmore trajectories, and career-planning and networking resources available to them.
