Two-Day SOAR Schedule

We'll be hosting a two-day SOAR session in 2018, but are still developing the specific schedule. Please check back in early spring for a detailed schedule. If you attending this session, plan on arriving on campus at 9 a.m. on day one, spending the night, and departing campus around 1 p.m. on day two.

  • What's the difference between the one- and two-day SOAR? During our two-day SOAR session, you will have the deeper experience of seeing what it's like to live on campus for yourself and stay overnight in a campus residence hall. In addition, you'll get a head start on building connections with other students and faculty through social events and academic sessions.
