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 fall 2016 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?
