It's time to Do North.
January 11 - February 3, 2021
In response to continuing public health concerns surrounding Covid-19, we have reimagined our Student Orientation, Advising, and Resources (SOAR) winter program and have developed a mix of virtual-live, self-paced, and interactive programs for the month of January.
All admitted students are expected to participate in our virtual SOAR program. During your SOAR sessions, you will get an official campus welcome, hear from various departments including First-Year Experience, Academic Advising, Academic Support Services, and Student Financial Services, and you will have the chance to connect with an orientation Leader. We strongly recommend attendance at the Parents and Families Information Session, too.
