Each spring, sophomores at Hobart and William Smith Colleges are required to consider the interests that they have developed over the past four semesters and declare a major. To celebrate this milestone, the Classes of 2012 have been invited to attend the Fourth Annual Sophomore Spring Forward event on Wednesday, March 24 from 6 – 8 p.m. in Bristol Gymnasium.
Students will join the President, Provost, Deans, faculty and other staff members at this celebratory event. In addition, faculty representatives from all academic majors and departments will be present to converse with and welcome students into their respective academic departments. Students will have the opportunity to enjoy a buffet dinner while getting to know the faculty and classmates in the departments of their majors.
This milestone in each student’s academic career will be commemorated at the event by the presentation of buttons, which will be handed out by the faculty representatives from each department. The buttons have meaningful images and slogans pertaining to each respective major. All sophomores are encouraged to attend this event to celebrate the hard work they have put into discovering and declaring their majors.
