QUIC Participates in the SOAR

July 6 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR) program aims to help ease the transition of incoming first-year students and their families. Participants will have an opportunity to learn about academic expectations, resources, learning strategies, and common student transition issues, as well as meet upper-year students, tour a residence room, and have their questions and concerns addressed. This one-day summer orientation program offers students and families a unique opportunity to: 

  • Meet with an advisor to assist you in choosing your courses
  • Connect with peers and develop a campus support network before the fall semester starts
  • Consult with an accessibility specialist, residence staff, or dining hall staff about any academic or living accommodation needs
  • Meet upper-year students in your program and the professors and advisors who are committed to your success
  • Tour a residence building and become acquainted with campus
  • Learn about specific health and wellness supports on campus, including health services, counselling, and accessibility services
  • Prepare effectively for new academic expectations
