1. Knowing that you're not a freshman anymore and all frosh-related stigma has finally become old news.
2. If you're in a sorority or a frat, the feeling of knowing that you no longer have to rush is relieving.
3. You get to (most likely) come back to an already established friend group.
4. You already know your way around campus, which dining halls are the best, and the best places to hang out and study – you're basically in the know of how everything works and it feels amazing.
5. You don't have to worry as much about god awful gen eds and taking as many classes that aren't interesting to you.
6. You've learned and grown – a lot.
For example, some classic freshman tragedies may include failing too many classes because you were too busy partying or if having a nightmare roommate. These are things you've probably learned from and now you're ready to come back and tackle college living the right way.
7. Overall, you feel more mature.
Whether you've been halfway across the country or just a few hours away from home, you've grown and matured in so many ways. Becoming a Sophomore is symbolic to ease into that realization. The more time you spend in college, the more you grow and the more you learn.
