ResHall SOAR Day

Confirmed Residence Hall students will be invited to a ResHall SOAR Day.   Students will be notified of their ResHall SOAR Day as soon as their housing is confirmed.

This SOAR Day (Student Orientation, Advising & Registration) is convenient way to accomplish the important enrollment steps - all in one trip!  During this program, there are wonderful information sessions for parents, guardians or other supporters as well as an opportunity for students to stay overnight in the Residence Halls. 

The dates for the programs this year are:

#1: June 29 & 30
#2: July 15 & 16
#3: August 5th & 6th

Students accepted after the last ResHall SOAR Day or students who have summer transportation issues that prevent them from attending their SOAR Day will have an opportunity to Placement Test and SOAR once they arrive to the Residence Halls on August 23rd.
