In addition to the mandatory summer orientation program, the optional SOAR experience is designed to give you an opportunity to build social connections with other trip members and introduce you to the amazing local natural areas surrounding Fredericksburg. These trips are not only fun, but are also a great way for incoming students to meet other first-years and learn about UMW from upperclassmen.
If you participated in the SOAR 2017 program, we invite you to come to the UMW ORec SOAR Social held on August 23rd, 2017 from 8:30pm to 10:00pm. Location: TBD.
Planning for SOAR 2018 is underway. Please visit the site in February – March 2018 for more details regarding that.
