JULY 3, 2012

Picture of students at SOARFrom July 20-25, Augsburg College will welcome new Auggies and their families to campus for SOAR summer orientation. Members of the class of 2016 will attend this overnight experience to meet each other and learn (almost) everything they need to know before their first day of fall classes.

The student program includes a "town hall" meeting with the dean of the College, a session on academic success, time to connect with campus organizations and academic departments at the "showcase," and an introduction to technology resources as well as public safety. SOAR also includes special sessions for parents and guardians.

At SOAR, new students meet their student orientation leaders. These leaders will guide new students through orientation and serve as peer advisers throughout the fall semester. Students are organized into "neighborhood" groups that meet during the two-day orientation and go on excursions to learn about the neighborhoods surrounding campus.

Orientation activities continue with Auggie Days, a week-long series of events that begins with move-in day on Saturday, Sept. 1.

Welcome new Auggies and families!
