SOAR — Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration

Congratulations on your decision to attend the University of Mary! We’re excited to have you join our community and start your university career. At Mary, it all starts with SOAR — a day for Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration.

    What You’ll Do at SOAR

    SOAR will be your first taste of what it’s like to be a Marauder. You’ll explore the campus and meet faculty, staff, and students. You and your parents will learn about all of the support services that will be here for you — from the time you arrive for classes to the day you graduate, and beyond.

    1. Register for classes. You’ll meet with an academic advisor and register for your first semester of classes. An advisor will go over your class schedule, discuss your options, and work with you to design your individual academic plan.
    2. Meet your president and faculty. You’ll hear from University of Mary President Monsignor James Shea and our accomplished faculty — the dedicated men and women who will challenge you, mentor you, and bear witness to your success.
    3. Learn about what your campus has to offer. At the #LifeatMary fair, you’ll find information about financial aid, campus services, student organizations, and more. This is where you and your parents will find all things Mary: what to expect and how to succeed.

    I had a great time at SOAR this spring! I learned a lot about the university and campus. I truly believe I am prepared for the fall semester.
