SOAR

SOAR (Student Orientation, Advising, & Registration) is offered each semester for entering college freshmen. SOAR is designed to give first-time college students an opportunity to get acclimated to campus life at Wallace Community College, to become familiar with specific College policies, and to register for their classes.  It is strongly recommended that all entering freshmen attend a SOAR session.
