Orientation

SOAR

SOAR is a Summer Orientation, Advisement and Registration program for first-time freshmen. During SOAR, students spend a day on campus learning about Northwest, connecting with other students and a SOAR Leader dedicated to working with the student’s academic interest area, meeting with a faculty advisor and registering for first trimester classes. Parents also have programming dedicated just to them. Both parents and students also have the opportunity to visit residence halls, get questions answered at a student services fair, and more.
