SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) is offered each summer for entering college freshman. It gives first-year students an opportunity to become acclimated to life at Southern Union and to register for fall semester classes early. It is strongly recommended that all freshmen attend a SOAR session. For more information, contact Alecia Lockwood at 256-395-2211, extension 5153 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
