Journalists and researchers have been looking for new ways to describe the changes in the lives of the millennial generation. Some say today’s 20-somethings are living an “extended adolescence.” 41, they are still like teenagers. Others say they are having a “delayed adulthood.” The term “boomerang kids” is popular. That means young people leave their parents’ house 42 , like a boomerang thrown through the air, later return. Research psychologist Jeffrey Arnett says these terms can suggest that many Americans 43 20-somethings. He says, “There’s a tendency at least in the United States for people to look at this negatively and to deplore it and say what’s wrong with them that they won’t grow up?” He calls the 20s a “special decade of life.” He says Americans should consider the positive aspects. For example, 20-somethings usually have a series of school and work experiences. They may have several serious romantic relationships. Or they might try living in different cities or even different countries. “It’s the freest time of your life. It’s the one time of your life 44 you can get up and go basically anywhere you want and travel and experience new things, do a service project in some remote part of the world, or just experience the freedom of being 45 in your 20s.” He calls this a time of “emerging adulthood.” In other words, 20-somethings are more mature than adolescents but not quite full adults. He says because emerging adults try so many things, they will ultimately make better choices about work, love and home.

For more than 50 years, those in higher education have recognized the “sophomore slump.” After the first year filled with novelty and excitement, sophomores often struggle to find their passions and set their goals, which leaves them with a sense of inertia and disorganization. They realize there are discrepancies between their expectations and the realities of college which lead to feelings of uncertainty about their futures. Consequently, sophomores may become disengaged and may even drop out. Moreover, without the aid of an intentional process to work through this confusion, sophomores are left to choose majors of careers they know little about.
 Career-scape (C-scape) is one university’s unique sophomore year integrated learning experience, designed to help students to plan their careers. It takes students through a comprehensive process of discovering and integrating their personal and professional landscapes, using their personal compass to define their direction, and personally mapping the steps to get there. This program is unique because it builds on Fink’s seminal framework on integrated design of significant learning experiences. The aim of C-scape is to actively engage sophomores in the process of taking responsibility for their own learning and their future personal and professional success.
