New for Second Year ODU StudentsNewsletters

Sophomore Success News - March 2013

Halfway Point

They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. With mid-terms wrapping up and progress report grades coming out, you have probably been very busy the past couple of weeks. Spring break is right around the corner, so make sure to take some well-deserved time to yourself. This is a great time to start thinking about your summer plans. Where will you spend your summer? Will you take classes over the summer? Do you need to find a summer job? The earlier you make these plans, the more likely you are to find the classes you want and a job you enjoy which will alleviate future stress (out like a lamb).

Majors Fair

The future is here...are you ready? Find out Wednesday, March 20 from 10 am-2 pm in the North Mall of Webb Center.

This is a great opportunity to meet advisors and learn more about:

  • Deciding what your major will be
  • How to declare a major
  • Internships opportunities
  • Minor and Double Major options
  • Support Services
  • Peer Educator Program
