SOAR stands for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration and is coordinated by the Center for the First-Year Experience (CFYE). SOAR is UW-Madison’s orientation program and provides the opportunity to:
- Gain exposure to the array of academic and social opportunities at UW–Madison.
- Begin to integrate into university life and UW–Madison culture.
- Think about what you would like your Wisconsin Experience to be.
- Gain an understanding of university policies, procedures, and processes.
January 2023 SOAR dates will be held January 17, 18, and 19th. In the reservation system, you will be able to select one of these days to attend SOAR. Note: Certain academic advising units may not be present each day. The reservation system will only show the dates available for you to attend based on your academic major.
