Spartan Orientation, Advising & Registration (SOAR) is UNCG’s orientation program for all undergraduate students and their families. SOAR is an interactive program for incoming students and families to meet with an advisor, register for classes, learn about campus resources, experience the UNCG environment, and much more!

As you enter a new academic environment, you may experience feelings ranging from apprehension to excitement. SOAR is required for all incoming undergraduate students because we believe so strongly that your participation in SOAR will significantly improve your transition to college life.

At SOAR, students and families will learn tips to aid in the college transition process. Faculty members, administrators, advisors, and current students will present a wide spectrum of information including academics, class selection, campus resources, meal plan options, and co-curricular opportunities. We invite you to attend the programs, ask questions, and open yourself to the discovery of new people and ideas.
