The Sophomore Jump Program provides all sophomore students at Colorado College with opportunities to grow and develop personally, academically, and socially throughout their sophomore year. 

Students who participate in the Sophomore Jump Program will:

  • Develop their sense of belonging on campus, as well as their strategies for achieving academic success and personal well-being
  • Cultivate relationships with faculty beyond their advisors and professors
  • Understand different academic programs available at CC and possess the tools to make informed decisions about their majors by the end of the academic year
  • Learn about off-campus and study-abroad programs, as well as grant, fellowship, and research opportunities, in order to maximize their time and experience at CC
  • Know how to find and apply for internships and how to narrate their experiences to potential employers
