Summer Orientation for Academic Readiness (SOAR)

SOAR banner

Come SOAR with us

SOAR is an extended orientation experience intended to prepare students for the transition into Memorial University.

This highly engaging two-day program will encourage students to engage in the Memorial community. Students will develop friendships with future classmates, meet faculty and key administrators, and experience the innovations and traditions at Memorial.

By attending SOAR, students will be better prepared to launch forth into their first year at Memorial University.

SOAR is $90 per student, covering all meals and overnight accommodations.

What's in it for you?

  • Make new friends before your first week of classes
  • Before you register for courses, meet some professors
  • Learn your way around campus before classes begin
  • Before you decide where to live, stay a night in Student Residences
