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 all 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.
