Join us for a live conversation with Vice Chancellor for Student Affairs Lori Reesor on Wednesday, July 14 at noon CDT. Dr. Reesor will discuss the transition incoming families go through when their new Badger begins the next phase of their life as a college student. The session will be streamed to YouTube and the Parent and Family Program Facebook Page. It will also be captioned and recorded for viewing afterwards.
SOAR is coordinated by the Center for the First-Year Experience (CFYE). At SOAR, students will begin their transition to UW–Madison by learning about academic advising, degree requirements and campus resources. They will also enroll in their first-semester courses. There are online SOAR experiences for both students, as well as parents and families.
Badger Jumpstart is an optional on-campus program designed for incoming students and one parent/guest to visit campus prior to moving in this fall. The program is 2 hours and 30 minutes, and includes a short information session about campus followed by a 75-min walking tour. Badger Jumpstart is not connected to a student’s required SOAR Experience.
