Campus came alive over the past two weeks as hundreds of incoming first-year students and their parents attended the Summer Orientation to Academics and Resources (SOAR).

The annual program gives incoming students the opportunity to learn more about the living and learning environment as well as campus services and resources before arriving in September. Each day of SOAR included presentations on a variety of topics, a resource fair, academic advising, residence tours, and program-specific meet-and-greet sessions.

For the first time this year, students with food allergies or food intolerances could meet one-on-one with a representative from Hospitality Services in order to become acquainted with the available supports.

Students who were unable to attend SOAR can participate in a number of upcoming webinars designed to support the transition to Queen’s. Visit the Undergraduate Admission website for the webinar schedule.
