Ready to SOAR


During the month of June, several hundred new Berry College students soared onto campus for an exciting two-day orientation session.  

Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) is a program that introduces freshmen and transfer students to life, work and future classmates at Berry. New students have the opportunity to learn their way around, make new friends and meet their advisors before classes start this fall.  

SOAR leaders, a group of current Berry students, help guide and answer questions about college, conduct icebreaker games and assist incoming students on defining what they want their next four years to look like. Parents, faculty, staff and current students are excited for this up-and-coming fall class.

The new students return for Viking Venture Aug. 15-19 and classes start Aug. 20.
