First-Year Orientation (SOAR)

2020欧洲杯体育足球即时比分becoming a cardinal begins with orientation, and we are thrilled to welcome you to svsu. in these unique and unprecedented times, these sessions will have to look different in order to keep our whole cardinal family safe. however, we remain committed to guiding you and assisting you in your transition to life at svsu.

2020欧洲杯体育足球即时比分for these reasons, we have modified the format of our first-year student orientation program. all course registration components are now completed online via a virtual meeting with an academic advisor. we have also taken significant steps to adapt our soar events to be as safe and welcoming as possible. 

  1.  SOAR, the in-person, on-campus component of orientation, is strongly encouraged for all incoming first-year students, but it will not be required this year. While we strongly believe in the value of these programs and would absolutely love to see you all in person, we also understanding that some students will not feel safe or comfortable in any group setting for medical, personal, or family reasons. As a result, you will not be penalized if you choose not to attend.

  2. If you do choose to participate, we will be taking many extra precautions to keep you healthy and safe. We have modified our event’s agenda to ensure that student groups will have no more than 7-8 students each, and there will be no more than 3 groups per session or activity. Additionally, all participants (staff, students, and campus guests) will be expected to follow the Cardinal NEST Plan, including wearing face coverings at all times and practicing social distancing. 

  3. Finally, in order to minimize the total number of people in attendance and to allow for the meeting spaces needed to more safely disperse the student sessions, the in-person Parent and Family Conference has unfortunately been cancelled. While we are disappointed that we cannot offer this programming face-to-face this year, parents/guests will be encouraged to view relevant materials online instead. We will be posting videos and presentations on a dedicated parent orientation website as soon as possible. We do also plan to offer some family-focused virtual Q&A sessions via Zoom or Facebook live later in the summer as well.

Whether you choose to attend SOAR or not, please be assured that we are here for you! Feel free to contact us at orientation@1370wpaz.com2020欧洲杯体育足球即时比分 anytime, and join our Instagram page just for you at .

 

If you need any accommodations to fully participate in SOAR, please reach out to us directly at orientation@1370wpaz.com.

Please be assured that we will continue to monitor the public health guidelines and recommendations, and will fully comply with any instructions at that time to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our students, families, and staff.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is orientation necessary?

at svsu, we feel it is important for students to become familiar with academic requirements, important deadlines, and the university calendar. we also want to help students find their way around campus and introduce them to academic support services and extracurricular opportunities. during orientation, students will receive academic advising, schedule classes, and learn about ways to get involved on campus. we've also seen many lasting friendships begin at soar and have a significant impact on students.

Is orientation mandatory?

A Flight School or Advising Appointment is mandatory to ensure that you are properly registered for the upcoming year. SOAR is not required, but strongly encouraged! Transfer students are required to complete Express Orientation.

When will I receive information about SOAR?

After you have applied and been accepted to SVSU, you should receive an Admissions Packet. Included will be information on the SOAR program, as well as instructions on how to reserve your SOAR date. To make a reservation, following the steps outlined on the Next Steps page by creating your online account and using mySVSU to sign up.

Will I get the SOAR orientation day I want?

2020欧洲杯体育足球即时比分orientation days are reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. once the registration is received, a confirmation screen is displayed instantly, and confirmation materials with the assigned soar date will be mailed to the student.

Is there an orientation session for my parents?

2020欧洲杯体育足球即时比分unfortuntately, we are unable to offer the parent conference at soar this year. due to social distancing needs and the safety precautions in place for the student programming, we are not able to provide large scale parent programming this year.

however, the cancellation of the formal parent programming does not ban anyone from campus, and parents are still welcome to travel with their students and remain on campus for the day (provided they follow the same mask and social distancing guidelines outlined in the student confirmation email).

however, please note that parents or guests will not be permitted to accompany their student through the day’s activities due to room and group capacity limits. there will also be a team of orientation leaders available to assist with navigating campus and handling any remaining business in this unstructured time as well.

Will I see my parents during SOAR?

in order to keep groups small and abide by room capacity limits, parents or guests will not be permitted to accompany their student through the day’s activities.

How many students attend each SOAR?

there are up to 120 students at each soar event.

What accommodations are made for those with special needs?
