Tierney Sophomore Year Experience

Tierney Sophomore Year Experience

The Tierney Sophomore Year Experience acknowledges that the Sophomore Year is a crucial transition period where residents will have to make decisions personally, socially, and academically for their future. 

Resident Assistants in Tierney provide support and stability, while building community in our Residence Hall. They act as liaisons between residents and campus resources to enhance our resident’s college experience. They also provide programs that are educational, experiential, and collaborative, and will contribute to each resident’s growth as an individual. 

The Tierney Sophomore Year Experience is located in The Residential College at Tierney Hall and is available to Sophomore students.

To be a member of the Tierney Sophmore Year Experience ILC, all residents will be required to sign a participation agreement that commits attending at least 75% of the monthly ILC related events and programs. 

Efforts for this Integrated Learning Community are coordinated by:

Ms. Brianna Docimo: Resident Director for Tierney Residential College (
Mr. Joshua Conway: Area Coordinator for Integrated Learning Communities (
