Penn State Dropping Titles: Freshman, Soph, Junior & Senior

Penn State’s faculty senate approved a recommendation in its April 27 meeting to take the words “freshman,” “sophomore,” “junior” and “senior” out of course catalogue descriptions. The action does not impact the university as a whole. Instead, the faculty senate recommends using “first-year,” “second year,” “third-year” or “fourth-year” to refer to students.
