Second Year Initiative
Students in their second year at FSU have a resource: the Second Year Initiative (SYI). SYI is designed to assist undeclared students between the end of their first year and the point at which they are accepted into a major program. We do this in a variety of ways:
- Second-Year Advisement: Undeclared students in good academic standing will continue to be advised by their former Freshman Seminar instructor. Students in academic difficulty will be advised by the SYI Coordinator.
- Career Counseling: SYI works with Advisement and Career Services to provide guidance in choosing careers and majors. SYI organizes other events where second-year students can talk with advisors, faculty, and practitioners of different professions to help students gain more information about their career and major options.
- Second-Year Events: SYI includes a number of events tailored to the specific needs of second-year students. These include celebrations and recognition of the achievements of second-year students.
- Major Exploration: SYI works with students still trying to determine a major, or those who are not excepted into FSU's more competetive majors and need to determine a new major to explore.
