The Matched Advising Program for Sophomores pairs second-year students with junior and senior mentors for one-on-one support related to concentration declaration, research opportunities, internships, and general academic counseling.
In addition to one-on-one peer advising, MAPS organizes panel presentations geared toward sophomores as well as focus groups that provide a forum for MAPS participants to discuss the opportunities and challenges unique to the sophomore year at Brown.
Chinezi Ihenatu '15 and Neel Yalamarthy '15 are the 2014-2015 Academic Year MAPS Co-Coordinators. Visit them during their office hours at the Curricular Resource Center or email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
To become a MAPS mentee (sophomores) or mentor (juniors/seniors), an application is required; applications for mentees will be due in mid-September 2015, and for mentors late-September 2015. For a link to the applications, email email@example.com.
Note: Sophomores must declare concentrations by April 1.
