To combat the “sophomore slump”, Student Life’s Office of Transitions booked Newport’s Tiki Boat for a Hawaiian themed night of games, contests and snacks for sophomores. The night offered an opportunity for sophomores to recoup and relax with their fellow classmates.
Along with flowered shirts, a DJ, a soda bar and a limbo contest, there was a table on the upper deck for students to read about the various stages of sophomore year and then reflect on which stage they found themselves. Once they discovered the stage that best described them, students wrote the stage down on a piece of paper.
Describing the event’s main goal, the sophomore and junior director for the Office of Transitions, Amber Garman, said it was to provide a space for students to “reflect on their sophomore year while having fun and being together as a class.” As the event planner, Garman said she was pleased with the turnout and the feedback.
