The sessiono will be held on the A&M-Texarkana campus at 7101 University Ave., Texarkana, Texas.

Check-in is set for 1 p.m. Thursday at Bringle Lake Village, the on-campus residence hall.

The orientation experience is designed to encourage student engagement and to familiarize new students with the campus community. Members of the A&M-Texarkana O-Team (Orientation Team) and the Office of Student Life will lead activities throughout SOAR.

SOAR includes information on the first-year experience, a campus tour, a freshmen meet-up, team-building activities, and a values and honor code session.

“SOAR is a really exciting time on our campus. It’s our chance to welcome new students to our ever-growing Eagle family,” said Michael Stephenson, Student Life coordinator at A&M-Texarkana. “We provide resources for a seamless transition to campus for students and parents by exploring university services, meeting academic leaders, registering for classes and participating in group activities.”

Registration is open for the upcoming SOAR sessions on June 22-23 and July 20-21. Fall classes begin Aug. 28.
