Student and parents in a residence hall room

First-year undergraduate Allison Dahlgren, left, of Brookfield, Wis., watches as her parents, Kathleen and Larry Dahlgren, leave nothing to chance and measure the space and furniture dimensions in a sample residence room in Newell Smith Hall during a Student Orientation, Advising and Registration (SOAR) session on July 26.

Sponsored by Orientation and New Student Programs, the two-day SOAR sessions provide new students and their parents an opportunity to meet with staff and advisors, register for classes, stay in a residence hall, take a campus tour and learn about campus resources.
