Simpson Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR)

A day devoted to making your transition to college easier

SOAR is designed to introduce you to college by helping you register for classes and giving you the best advice regarding transitioning to college life.

Participate in a SOAR day

Students who have paid their enrollment deposit will receive log-in information and instructions to register for SOAR through their personal SC Connect portal. Log-in information and instructions will be emailed to deposited students in March.

Simpson Orientation, Advising, & Registration (SOAR) is a complete introduction for new first-year students to Simpson College. You will choose one of the scheduled days to spend a full day on campus. During your visit, you will meet your faculty advisor, register for your first semester classes, receive all contact information and access to SC Connect, get your student ID photo taken and start building both personal and academic relationships. Throughout this process, you will have the guidance of a current student who will serve as your orientation leader both in the summer and again in the fall when you begin your college journey at Simpson.

The 2020 SOAR dates are:

  • June 11th
  • June 12th
  • June 15th 
  • June 16th

Full schedules will be posted before SOAR. There is a separate schedule for students and for guests. Guests and students will be reunited at check-out at the end of the day.

If you have any questions about SOAR, please email Anna Peña,  Director of First-Year Experience, at anna.pena@simpson.edu.
