The Parent Conference At SOAR

SVSU's Parent Orientation, called the Parent Conference at SOAR,  is held during the same timeframe as each SOAR event, from 9:00 AM - 4:00 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. 

Our Parent Conference dates correspond with all freshmen orientation dates, so you can simply attend the Parent Conference on the same date that your student is completing his or her SOAR program. No RSVP or advance registration is required.
