MOWR Students

All students are required to attend a SOAR session prior to enrolling in classes for the first time. SOAR sessions are led by current Georgia Southern students who will be a great resource for you to ask questions of and show you what it means to be a Georgia Southern student!

Move On When Ready students attend a one-day session to discover campus resources, campus life options, and review MOWR student expectations. SOAR lasts from 8:00 am- 5:00 pm.

To make a reservation, visit our online reservation system. If you need assistance, contact your Admissions Counselor, Devon Jameson, at or 912.478.0647.
