We encourage parents to attend SOAR. There is a lot of information provided during SOAR.
Dress for the day is casual. You will have to walk, so wear comfortable shoes.
We provide a continental breakfast in the morning. Since we do not charge an orientation fee, we do not provide lunch.
No. You will have your picture taken – so be prepared! We ask that you do not wear hats for your photo. Your EagleCard will be ready for pick-up when your semester courses begin.
Although we would love to show you your future residence hall room during the tours, we are unable to do so due to student occupancy, summer camps, and scheduled maintenance. A show room from a suite and double occupancy buildings will be available for viewing.
Students and parents stay together for the morning sessions. In the afternoon, students go to advising without their parents. Parents will attend their own orientation session during the student’s academic advising session.
