Posted: Friday, July 9, 2010 11:11 am
The Press 7.9.10 Incoming freshmen who plan to attend the University of Tennessee at Martin during the fall semester can get prepared for college life by attending a Summer Orientation and Registration (SOAR) program.
The final SOAR date has been scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, July 26-27. Check-in is set for 2:30 p.m., at Boling University Center.
Students will get the opportunity to meet with academic advisers and register for classes; tour the campus, residence halls and University Village; receive information about student activities, housing and financial aid; and hear detailed information about First-Year Initiative (an orientation for freshmen the week before classes). Students should attend both SOAR and First-Year Initiative prior to the fall semester.
Students and parents will participate in a variety of informational sessions such as those on financial aid, student health services, public safety, bookstore, student employment and other topics. Additional concurrent sessions also are scheduled for students and parents with topics including student activities, Greek life, housing and meal plans. Administrative offices will be open and students and parents will get additional time to tour the campus and visit with UT Martin personnel in housing, admissions and financial aid.
Students must have applied for admission and received a tentative or final acceptance letter. Advance SOAR registration is required. For more information, call the office of admissions toll free at 1-800-829-UTM1 or 731-881-7027. Registration is available at www.utm.edu.
