SOAR is the first of two mandatory orientation programs to help prepare all new students for an exceptional experience at Hamline. During this program, you will have the opportunity to:

  • Interact with offices and departments to get your questions answered
  • Meet other incoming new first-year students and the New Student Mentors (NSMs)
  • Connect with the advising staff from the Center for Academic Success and Achievement to better understand the Hamline Plan and course registration
  • Register for your first semester of courses at Hamline

Summer 2023 sessions

Registration for summer sessions has closed. Please contact Emma Scott at or 651-523-2994 for next steps.

Sessions for parents and guests

Parents and guests, we have orientation information for you, too! Our parent information sessions covered topics including public safety and the Student Administrative Services and Dean of Students offices. Although summer orientation sessions have finished, we invite you to watch a recorded video of one of our parent sessions.

Please keep in mind that some of the information regarding SOAR may no longer apply, as we have completed all of our SOAR sessions.
