What is SPRING SOAR?

Spring SOAR is a required half-day orientation experience for all incoming first-year and transfer students starting at Augsburg College in spring 2017. Spring SOAR is designed to help with the transition to Augsburg. Students will learn about college resources and services; have a chance to ask questions; meet fellow students, faculty, and staff; and discover why being a part of the Augsburg community is so rewarding.

Are students required to attend SPRING SOAR?

Spring SOAR is required for all incoming first-year and transfer students starting at Augsburg College in spring 2017.
