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!
