New students will be required to participate in the Soar and Week of Welcome (WOW) orientation programs, starting with the Fall 2015 incoming class, according to an email sent by Provost Kathleen Enz Finken and Vice President for Student Affairs Keith Humphrey.
“Requiring attendance at both of these programs will solidify students’ relationships with Cal Poly, deliver critical information to them, and connect them with key resources that are essential to their success,” the email read. “This will also enhance Cal Poly’s ability to build relationships with parents and supporters, a key priority for our campus.”
The email said “the timing, content, and delivery of both programs will shift,” and financial aid and more flexible scheduling options will be put in place for SOAR.
