SOAR: New Student Orientation
All new, incoming students are required to attend SOAR: New Student Orientation. This virtual program will introduce you to important campus resources that will set you up for success during your undergraduate career. You will also be introduced to your SOAR leader, who will be a key asset in guiding you through the enrollment process this summer and during your first few weeks of courses.
College isn't just a new experience for the students—it's also a family experience! Family members are invited to attend an optional virtual Family SOAR, offered during select dates throughout the summer. At Family SOAR, you will learn about the different ways you can support your student as well as hear from Illinois Tech leadership and participate in a Family and Staff chat.
