Welcome to your sophomore year in the college of engineering! Year 2 Resources and Initiatives for Success in Engineering (Y2 RISE) is a new initiative to help bridge the gap between freshman year and your future goals by providing resources and activities to:

  • assist in your continued academic success; 
  • expand your understanding of engineering;

  • help you develop meaningful relationships with peers, faculty and staff.
