Matched Advising Program for Sophomores

The Matched Advising Program for Sophomores pairs second-year students with junior and senior mentors for one-on-one and group-advising support related to concentration declaration, research opportunities, internships, "sophomore slump," and general academic counseling. 

In addition to one-on-one peer advising, MAPS organizes group events and 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.

Mentee applications are available here and are due by Monday, September 26 at 11:59PM.
