We are delighted that your student has chosen to attend Wesley College and hope that you are able to attend SOAR (Summer Orientation and Academic Registration) with them when a special program for parents/guardians has been scheduled. SOAR registration opens at 8 a.m. in the College Center Lobby.
The SOAR program is designed to give parents and guardians the valuable information needed to assist in the transition from parenting a high school student to guiding a college student. Because your information needs differ from your student’s, the Parent/Guardian SOAR schedule will be personalized for what parents have told us they want to know.
Parents/guardians will have specific presentations answering these questions, including opportunities to meet with representatives from Financial Aid, Residence Life, Academic Support and other areas of the College community. Placing parents/guardians in focus groups away from incoming students offers opportunities to address specific questions and concerns you may have about Wesley College.
The day will conclude at 2 PM after optional tours and time for you to obtain lunch.
We understand some of you travel to participate in SOAR. If you would like to stay overnight, browse local accommodations.
