The Sophomore Success Series brings together a small group of recent alumni with sophomore students in the College to share experiences and give advice on a wide range of topics. The program is intentionally structured as a series of intimate dinners with Georgetown College alumni, rather than lectures, or one-on-one meetings. This informal setting helps to spark a more casual conversation between students and alumni on best practices for navigating their Georgetown experience.
