About SOAR

Student Orientation Advising and Registration welcomes new freshmen and transfer students, and answers many important questions. During SOAR you and your parents:  

  • Meet your academic advisor and receive your fall class schedule
  • Meet your work supervisor and learn about your first Berry College job
  • Receive your housing assignment for Fall 2017
  • Receive your Berry College email address and post office box
  • Meet your fellow classmates coming to Berry in the Fall of 2017
  • Meet 18 exceptional SOAR Leaders who want to help you transition to Berry
  • Spend a night on campus in a residence hall

Both the SOAR Student Schedule and the SOAR Parent Schedule are posted in the left hand column of this page to give you an idea about the schedule since 2016 will mirror 2015 schedules. Parents are responsible for arranging their own accommodations. (See SOAR Accommodations)
