    Second-Year Experience

    The second year at Shaw University is an exciting time of reflection, growth, and continued engagement for students. Second-year students will build upon their personal, academic, and career foundations established during their first year of college. Fundamental to this process is the opportunity to participate in academic and finance workshops, social events, career fairs, volunteer in the community, receive career advisement, and the opportunity to study abroad.
