August SOAR

All students are required to attend a SOAR session prior to enrolling in classes for the Fall term. 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!

You will also be able to meet with your academic advisor, who will advise you on which classes to take during your first semester. You will then be able to register for classes and leave SOAR with a class schedule! We encourage you to prepare for advisement prior to SOAR.

Final SOAR Session Date for Students Entering in Fall 2019

SOAR will begin at 9:00am and end at approximately 5:00pm, and occurs in the Russell Union.

Session X: August 17
