Student Orientation Advising and Registration (SOAR) welcomes new freshmen and transfer students into the Berry community and answers many important questions. As we plan to continue taking necessary precautions related to COVID-19, we are adjusting our typical overnight program to a single-day in-person experience for 2021. To keep our crowds safe and manageable, students are limited to bringing one guest to SOAR. We are also offering a virtual SOAR session for those who cannot attend in person.
