Sophomore Advising

he Sophomore Advising Program promotes the academic and personal well-being of sophomores at a critical and exciting time in their academic years. Sophomore Advisors affiliated with each House serve as primary academic advisors to incoming sophomores and guide them through the process of declaring a concentration and transitioning to house life.


Cabot’s Sophomore Advising Program is overseen by its Sophomore Advising Coordinator (SAC)Bridget Alex, a third-year Resident Tutor in Cabot House. Over the summer, the SAC matches each incoming sophomore with a Resident Tutor or House staff member, based on academic, extracurricular, and personal interests. Supported by the SAC and  by the Advising Programs Office (APO), these sophomore advisors help advisees make informed choices on a variety of topics: selecting courses, choosing a concentration, and deciding how to utilize extracurricular time.
The sophomore advising relationship does not end when students declare a concentration in early November. The relationship is a holistic one. The main objective is to help students identify their academic and professional goals and make informed choices about how to implement them, all the while maintaining a happy, healthy, and balanced lives.
