SOAR

May 15, 2020 | All Day

Event Details:

SOAR events are the starting point for your academic success and community connection at NU. During SOAR you will meet with an advisor, register for your first semester classes, learn about student resources, and get to know other new students. SOAR is your opportunity to get settled even before you arrive for New Student Orientation in August. SOAR is required for students who live within 300 miles of the NU campus, roughly the diameter of Vancouver, B.C., Coeur D’Alene, Idaho, Eugene, Oregon, and the Washington state coastline.

Location:

Argue Building, various room
