Make the most of your first year!
Student Orientation And Registration (SOAR) is led by continuing students and helps students and their families transition to Alverno College. Faculty, staff, students, advisors and administrators will present a variety of information in an interactive format about our abilities-based learning curriculum, campus services and resources, class selection, and more. Ask us questions, meet new people and get ready to soar!
You will register for classes during SOAR. Your first day of class, which includes Convocation, is Monday, Aug. 28, 2017, from 10:30 a.m. – 5 p.m.
