WELCOME TO THE SECOND-YEAR EXPERIENCE - MECCA MADE!

* Equipping 2nd-year students with resources and strategies necessary for academic and career success through targeted initiatives and structured programming; and
* Empowering 2nd-year students to successfully navigate their third and fourth years, complete their degrees, and be prepared for career success.
