SVSU's Parent Orientation, called the Parent Conference at SOAR, is held during the same timeframe as each SOAR event, from 9:00 AM - 4:30 PM.
This event offers a conference-type format with special presentations regarding faculty expectations, academic success, housing, campus life, student activities, health and safety services, financial aid, and more. The sessions are not only designed to provide parents with additional information about the University, but they also offer insight into the adjustments your son/daughter will face during the coming year.
