The Office of Student Life and the Title V Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) have teamed up to create new Pre-Major Clubs at Lehman including Pre-Law, Pre-Nursing, and Business. The Pre-Major Clubs are open for all students, but are intended for freshmen and sophomores who are undeclared and are considering various majors to prepare for their major and/or field of interest. Club Membership includes a welcome event, a panel discussion to learn about relevant majors, a class trip, and various workshops with guest speakers!
Interested In Joining? Mark Your Calendars!
Wednesday, September 18, 3-5pm: Pre-Major Club Welcome Event
Location: Student Life Building, Room 111
All Pre-Major Club members will be greeted by Student Life and the Title V Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) staff. Students will then re-locate to a classroom to meet with their Faculty Advisor to learn more about the club and their Advisor’s work in the field. Club officers will also be elected!
Students in the SYI Pre-Major Club will receive guidance from a faculty advisor and will have the opportunity to:
- Learn more about the desired field such as values and skills, myths and realities in the field, and alternative career directions for students interested in the intended field
- Receive Academic Preparation by finding out program requirements and necessary prerequisites
- Discover internship opportunities and various out of classroom experiences
- Hear from Lehman faculty, professionals, and alumni in the field
- Participate in an off-campus trip to a professional organization
- Receive guidance about tools to further explore and research the desired field as well as how to obtain professional resources/memberships, mentoring opportunities, and shadowing opportunities
