SophoMORE Connections

SophoMORE Connections took place virtually between January 5 and 19, 2021.

SophoMORE Connections is an exclusive program offered to second-year students during winter break. As a main feature of the program, students were able to register for an alumni-led industry cohort. Over three sessions, registered students explored an industry by engaging in mini-projects that allow them to test the skills and thought processes used in the field.

The program included an invigorating keynote address by Jon Sendach ’98, executive director, North Shore University Hospital, and skills-based events open to all sophomores.
