St. Olaf Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR)

SOAR Group 6

St. Olaf Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR) provides an extended orientation for all students in their first year to equip them with the knowledge and tools to be successful at St. Olaf.  SOAR provides a place to intentionally create community, access resources, and meet new people through small group activities with their SOAR Peer Leaders.  Students learn key skills like how to utilize campus resources and implement college level reading and study techniques through small group conversation, reflection, and the practice of successful academic habits led by our highly trained SOAR Peer Leaders.
