UNCG ready for SOAR 2015

Photo of parents and students from a past SOAR eventSpartans are preparing to welcome a new class of first year students.

Spartan Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) starts June 4, with eight freshman sessions and two Transfer and Adult sessions during the month.

SOAR will pick up again in August with two more Transfer Adult sessions and one more Freshman session before Rawkin’ Welcome Week begins.

All new freshmen will receive a copy of ““Where Am I Wearing?: A Global Tour to the Countries, Factories, and People that Make Our Clothes” by Kelsey Timmerman.  That is the Keker First Year Common Read book this year.

“We currently have at least 237 more freshmen and at least 222 more transfers confirmed than this time last year,” said Dr. Kim Sousa-Peoples. “We have seen the greatest growth in our in-state applications, but we are still up slightly for out-of-state students.”

As you see students and their family on campus in the coming weeks, don’t hesitate to say Hello and make our new Spartans feel welcome.
