Virtual Family Orientation
(VSOAR) 2021

As part of the transition process, we offer an orientation program for new students and their families called, VSOAR (Virtual Student Orientation Advising and Registration). VSOAR is designed to provide you, a family member of an incoming student, important information about programs, services and offices that are here to assist you and your student in their transition.

We encourage you to attend Family VSOAR to learn more about our University. While there will be components that mirror the Student VSOAR program, the Family Program will include sessions designed to assist family members in learning more about our University.

There will be opportunities for you to ask questions, attend a commuter or resident information session, connect with academic deans, and gain important resources to support your student's success at the University.
