Sophomore Summer Programming at Rocky

The Rockefeller Center Sophomore Summer programming gives students the opportunity to reflect on academic and career and academic goals while improving leadership and management skills necessary for success in future internships and jobs.

Create Your Path

Darin Eich during the Create Your Path Discussion Session Registration is now open for this innovative program designed to teach students a powerful process of self-reflection. Delve deep into your past experiences to identify what truly drives you, then use what you find to design your future. The program consists of 6 short online video workshops with activities to be done on your own, followed by a capstone event at the Rockefeller Center where you will turn your path into your reality. Sign up online - space is limited. More info at the Create Your Path website.

First-Year Fellows Sophomore Summer Projects


As the culminating experience for the First-Year Fellows program, Fellows work as a group to design and implement an event related to public policy for a campus audience during their sophomore summer on campus. Fellows use skills they learned in Civic Skills Training and the camaraderie built spending eight-weeks together in Washington, DC to host a successful event of their choice. Fellows learn valuable event planning skills under the guidance of the Rockefeller Center staff.

Summer Startup Experience


For the second summer in a row, the Rockefeller Center co-sponsored the Startup Experience on campus. This innovative two-day workshop challenges students to learn new modes of problem solving, team-based communication, and business model development to create a working foundation to address social challenges.

Henrik Scheel, CEO and Founder of Startup Experience, facilitated both workshops.  Henrik Scheel recently discussed "How an Entrepreneurial Mindset Can Change You" at TEDxSacremento.  View his TED Talk here.
