SOAR at Queen's this July! The Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR) is a one-day program designed to help ease the transition of our incoming first-year students and their families. Information sessions, as well as opportunities to connect with upper-year students, faculty and staff, will help prepare students for new academic expectations, address questions and fears, and introduce on-campus resouces and support services. Registration is now open! Visit http://queensu.ca/seo/orientation/soar.html.
This exciting week is designed to introduce students to campus life, give them an opportunity to meet other students and settle into residence life!
First-year students participate in the Arts and Science Orientation for incoming frosh.
BPHE (Honours) and BSCH KINE frosh will also have the opportunity to participate in orientation activities through the PHE/KIN Orientation program. Students will receive a complete handbook in the mail. As well, information about orientation activities will be posted below as it becomes available.
