UNCG Campus Weekly

Campus Weekly is published each Wednesday when classes are in session. In the summer, it is published biweekly.

SOAR 2013 starts June 6

051811NewsAndNotes_SOARSOAR will start for incoming students June 6. And a couple days earlier, UNCG faculty and staff get a preview.

This year’s SOAR Preview event will be June 4 at 3 p.m. in Cone Ballroom. This offers an opportunity for UNCG faculty and staff to meet the SOS and TASLs, learn more about what goes on during SOAR and get a special sneak-peek of the SOS performance. This event is an advance “thank you” for all that the campus community does to make SOAR a success. Please RSVP to soar@uncg.edu.

What’s new with this summer’s UNCG SOAR?

  • All freshmen will receive their First Year Summer Read book “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks” by Rebecca Skloot at SOAR. (It’s the first time all freshmen will participate in the read).
  • As reported in CW earlier, all freshman for the first time did “Before you SOAR” on-line orientation. (They were required to pass quizzes to gain access to SOAR reservations.)
  • This will allow an important feature of this year’s SOAR: Students will have increased time for other important, impactful activities – such as more time in discussions with their academic advisors.
