Warhawks SOAR: Tips To Know Before You Go

Welcome Warhawk!

We are looking forward to seeing you at the in-person Warhawks SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising and Registration) program! Please see below for more details about SOAR:

  • Know your WINS log-in and password.  You'll be logging into your account to enroll in classes at SOAR.
  • Parking: free parking is available during SOAR in Lot 7, located by the Visitor Center on Starin Road.  Look for the "Warhawks SOAR" signs on campus to guide you.  If using GPS, select the Visitor Center.
  • Check-in: check-in for Warhawks SOAR between 8:15-9:00am in the University Center (UC).  Once you've parked, follow the "Warhawks SOAR" signs to the UC. The first session begins at 9:00am so please be sure to allow enough time to complete the check-in process.
  • SOAR Schedule: The Welcome Address begins at 9:00am.  The majority of the day will be experienced in two distinct schedules where students are separate from guests beginning mid-morning.  You will have the opportunity to experience the Campus Resource Fair at the end of the day together.  Lunch is provided, the program will conclude around 4:00pm.  Attendance at the entire program is required in order to enroll in classes. 

We'll see you soon!
