Eastern's Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) program has been taking place on campus throughout June and July. The first session was on June 23 and the last session was July 12. The program, which is designed to make first-year students aware of the resources available to them, consisted of six (6) two-day sessions, during which approximately 155 incoming students per session attended informational sessions and social events.
During SOAR, students stayed overnight in Constitution Hall to give them an opportunity to experience life on campus. Students also had the opportunity to participate in several group sessions facilitated by student orientation counselors (SOCs), where they engaged with other students socially, had discussions and were able to ask student leaders questions about their experiences at Eastern. There also were sessions about living on campus and commuting to Eastern, as well as separate information sessions for parents.
