What is SOAR?

SOAR (Summer Orientation and Registration) is a 1-day orientation experience that is designed to introduce you to the university and ease your transition into college life. During the program, you will learn about UT Martin’s curriculum and campus resources, register for summer and/or fall classes, meet faculty and advisers, and begin to develop lifelong friendships with other new students. SOAR is a mandatory event for all incoming freshmen to attend.
