Orientation and Registration (SOAR)

Congratulations on your acceptance to Lyon College. The campus community, including faculty, staff, and your future classmates, looks forward to welcoming you to campus.  

SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising, and Registration) is required for all incoming students. Whether you are a first-year student, a transfer or visiting student, or an international student, SOAR will help you adjust to Lyon's living and learning community.

During your SOAR day, you have the opportunity to learn about the extraordinary and rigorous academic and curricular opportunities here at Lyon, meet faculty advisors, register for your first semester of classes, and connect with a community of peers as well as the larger campus and local community.
