Title V Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI)


Student Clubs

The Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) and the Office of Student Life have teamed up to create new Pre-Major Clubs at Lehman including Pre-Law, Pre-Nursing, Pre-Business, and Psychology. The Pre-Major Clubs are open for all students, but are intended for freshmen and sophomores who are undeclared and are considering various majors to prepare for their major and/or field of interest. Club Membership includes a welcome event, a panel discussion to learn about relevant majors, a class trip, and various workshops with guest speakers!

Interested In Joining? Mark Your Calendars!
Pre-Major Club Welcome Event: Wednesday, February 26, 3:30-5pm
Location: TBD

All Pre-Major Club members will be greeted by Student Life and the Sophomore Year Initiative (SYI) staff. Students will then re-locate to a classroom to meet with their Faculty Advisor to learn more about the club and their Advisor’s work in the field.

Students in the Pre-Major Clubs will receive guidance from a faculty advisor and will have the opportunity to:

  • Learn more about the desired field such as values and skills, myths and realities in the field, and alternative career directions for students interested in the intended field
  • Receive Academic Preparation by finding out program requirements and necessary prerequisites
  • Discover internship opportunities and various out of classroom experiences
  • Hear from Lehman faculty, professionals, and alumni in the field
  • Participate in an off-campus trip to a professional organization
  • Receive guidance about tools to further explore and research the desired field as well as how to obtain professional resources/memberships, mentoring opportunities, and shadowing opportunities

Interested students should contact the SYI Program Office at TitleV.acad@lehman.cuny.edu .
