SOAR - First-Time Freshmen

Beginning your college journey is a huge step and can sometimes be a nerve-racking transition. Through SOAR, we've got you covered. Not only will we help you feel more comfortable, connected, and at home on campus, but we'll also be here to make sure you complete all required steps for enrollment so you're ready to hit the ground running when you return for the start of classes.

Fall 2021 Students

Registration for our summer SOAR programs is now open. To register, please click here and sign in using the account you created when applying to Marian University or Saint Joseph's College. Once signed in, you will be able to view all of our available SOAR dates on the Events page. After you have registered for a SOAR, it will appear under My Events on the main page.

First-time freshmen have the option to attend either a one-day or a two-day SOAR program this summer. By choosing a two-day program, you have the opportunity to stay in a residence hall, build more connections, and make memories with future classmates. If you'd like to learn more about the difference in these programs, we encourage you to check out our schedule page. All incoming freshmen are required to participate in a SOAR program this summer.
