"SOAR is one of the best and most important activities for new students. It will be here where we will give you the tools to begin the journey. And you’ll develop mentors who will guide you the entire way. I am looking forward to being one of them."

It is designed to provide all new students - freshman, transfer, resident, commuter, or non-traditional - with a full array of special events, programs, workshops and fun activities. All these combine to introduce you to Dillard University and prepare you for a successful college experience. We strongly encourage parents and guardians to participate in the concurrent parent orientation sessions that coincide with SOAR.
