After many years of attention to improving the first college year for students, colleges and university administrators are now asking, "What next?" What happens when first-year students transition into their sophomore year? What are their needs and how can they be met?

This resource on the sophomore-year experience will represent an in-depth, comprehensive understanding of the transitional issues between a student's first and second years of college. It will be a primary aid in designing curricular and cocurricular programs for the second-year student population, focused on issues of retention, academic and career development, and personal transition and growth. 

Sponsored by The University of South Carolina's National Resource Center for The First-Year Experience and Students in Transition, which appears to be the only organization monitoring the developing interest in this topic, the book will offer an update on second-year-student satisfaction using both quantitative and qualitative measures from national research findings; give an overview of emergent themes: purpose, integration, engagement, and commitment; expand the view of student developmental issues; and discuss implications for best practices.
