Sophomore Year

Participants will begin their time as a NC Fellow at the beginning of their Sophomore year which is focused around learning individual values and consciousness of self. Shortly after the semester starts, participants attend a weekend-long retreat. This retreat is off-campus and intentionally programmed to foster community building and introduce program philosophies.

Another highlight of the Sophomore year is the Sophomore Seminar, a three-credit hour course that takes place in the Fall semester. The primary purpose of this course is to facilitate learning opportunities and experiences which allow participants to learn more about themselves including their values and identities and how those play a role in daily life.  In addition, participants will learn a great deal about their cohort members and effective dialogue.

Woven throughout all three years of the NC Fellows program are Monthly Meetings. Monthly Meetings are an opportunity for the entire NC Fellows program to come together over dinner, once a month during the Fall and Spring semesters, to explore a diverse range of issues. This often includes a conversation facilitated by campus and community leaders. Monthly meetings will end each Spring semester with a NC Fellows banquet to celebrate the year coming to an end and graduating seniors.
