Sophomore year is a time when students begin fine-tuning their college plans.

Coursework becomes more rigorous, the need for career planning escalates, experiential learning opportunities multiply and co-curricular time commitments increase. Amid the hectic pace, there is the familiarity of campus life, social activities and relationships.

During this time, there is an ongoing need for your support.  Resources like BW's Parent Connect2 online newsletter and BW Connection newsletter (mailed to the home) can help.
