Spartan Sophomore Success Program

SJSU Welcome Back balloons

Define your success.

The mission of the Spartan Sophomore Success Program is to help students transition from their first year to their second year and provide a series of events to help increase their social, personal, professional and academic development. Doing so will help with the retention rate of students, their sense of belonging to SJSU and the College of Engineering, and solidify what they want to do after graduation.
