We know that you and your family have many questions and concerns as you begin thinking about all of the tasks you need to accomplish before you arrive on campus.
Student Orientation & Academic Registration (SOAR)
is the next step in your process to becoming an Eagle! Our goals during SOAR are to ease your transition, answer all of your questions, and help you feel more connected and comfortable with the campus and Juniata's students, faculty, and staff.
