SOAR 2015 - UC-Charleston Campus

Welcome to the University of Charleston and the Golden Eagle family!  All of us at UC are excited that you will be joining our community and we look forward to meeting you. 

SOAR Summer Preview will focus on providing information and resources to you and your family as you prepare to begin your college career.  During SOAR, you will meet other students and families, interact with faculty members, learn more about life on campus, and have fun!  We HIGHLY ENCOURAGE all new students to attend a SOAR Summer Preview. 

When SOAR Summer Preview is over, that doesn’t mean your UC new student experience is over.  On August 22nd and 23rd, all new and transfer students will participate in Fall 2015 New Student Orientation.  Fall orientation is a mandatory event where students will meet their mentors and peer educators and start earning academic credit.
