We look forward to welcoming our Fall 2023 cohort this summer at Mies. With SOAR, undergraduate students will have an opportunity to meet classmates on campus and become familiar with...

  • Academic requirements and expectations 
  • Resources that will assist you in succeeding academically and socially at Illinois Tech 
  • How to navigate the technology services that you will use throughout your experience at Illinois Tech 
  • Meet with faculty, staff, and student leaders on campus

SOAR will take place at our Mies Campus this summer. Look for registration and agenda here later this spring! Questions? Contact
