Welcome Future Badgers! We're excited to connect with you!

We are excited to help start your journey as a Badger! This website will be your guide for your SOAR experience when information is available.

SOAR stands for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration and is coordinated by the Center for the First-Year Experience (CFYE).  During SOAR, you will begin your transition to UW–Madison by learning about academic advising, degree requirements, and campus resources.
