January SOAR

January SOAR 2019

January 17-18

All new students are required to participate in a SOAR event. During the weekend prior to the spring semester, you'll dive deep into the college life. You’ll do the basics such as getting your photo ID, mailbox key, and parking permit. The kick-off also includes a welcome from NVU President Elaine Collins. Once the weekend comes to a close, the campus will be filled with returning students, and you'll be able to mingle and meet fellow classmates.

If you are entering as a first-year student with less than 30 credits, your SOAR starts on Thursday, January 17, 2018.

Student Schedule January 17-18

If you are transferring in with 30 or more credits, you will attend SOAR on Friday, January 18, 2019.

Student Schedule January 18

Parents are encouraged to attend SOAR along with our parent-focused programming.

Once the weekend ends, you'll dive into your classes and enjoy Winter Welcome Week.
