SOAR (Seizing Opportunities for Academic Resilience)

Dates: August 18 – 21, 2014

Eligibility: first time freshmen and transfer students.

Description: Attending a four year University for the first time is a big step for many students.  To assist in this transition, 30 first year freshmen and first year transfer students who identify as a student of color and/or first generation are invited to attend a three night experience at Loyola University Chicago.  Through learning about the transition to college, gaining tools, sharing stories about personal and academic success, this experience will provide the opportunity to build meaningful relationships with peers, current students, and staff.  Join us for a fun, interactive, and reflective experience to begin creating your community at Loyola.



*Information will be updated soon for 2014.
