Summer Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR)
During a SOAR event, you will have the opportunity to connect with other current and incoming students, learn about student resources, meet with Student Financial Services, and register for classes with your academic advisor. SOAR days are designed to prepare you for Welcome Weekend (NU’s new student orientation) and to connect you with the Northwest University community so you can hit the ground running when you arrive in late August.
