SOAR 2016 Sessions
All new students will attend one of the three SOAR sessions offered during the summer. The dates are:
- Friday, April 8, 2016
- Monday, April 11, 2016
- Friday, June 10, 2016
For students who live over 500 miles from campus and may not be able to attend easily on one of those dates due to travel distance, a final SOAR will be offered on August 19, 2016.
We hope that you are able to attend SOAR with your student. While your student meets other incoming freshmen and gets to know the campus, we would like to welcome you to campus as well. For this purpose, we have designed a Parent Orientation Program to equip you for the next four years of parenting a college student. Information sessions are available on everything from financial aid, campus security, and health services to advice on "letting go" and making the transition to being a UE parent. You will also meet current UE parents and students and hear firsthand about their experiences with the University. Special meetings are set aside for parents, academic department chairs, and academic advisors, so you can be as much a part of the University family as your student. We believe that after attending SOAR you will be much more knowledgeable about the University and feel more comfortable about where your son or daughter will be spending the next four years!
