SOAR 2024

At Summer Orientation and Registration (SOAR), a true unique WNE tradition, you'll get a preview into life as a first-year Golden Bear from faculty, staff, and our highly trained student Orientation Group Leaders, learn about important resources on campus, and get tips on how to make a smooth transition to life as a WNE college student. Once you're finished you'll be ready to soar into a successful fall semester.
