Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Center for the Junior Year services and peer mentors are available online. The Center for the Junior Year engage and empower students in exploring and clarifying their interests and goals, overcoming personal and academic challenges, and connecting to campus resources and opportunities.

CJY is not an advising center, nor is it a career development center. Working with trained peer mentors, students have a “safe zone” to share their concerns and “design” solutions that fit their particular educational circumstance; from getting through a class to career preparation. The peer mentors help students develop a better understanding of college expectations now and expectations for life after college.
