Welcome Days

International SOAR Days: 
The Summer Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) process is designed to get you ready to attend Wartburg College in the Fall of 2018.  At International SOAR, you will meet with your academic advisor, register for classes, get your Wartburg ID, and meet some new friends along the way.  Additionally, you will receive important information about financial aid, housing, meal plans, student employment, and academic support.  We look forward to seeing you at Wartburg!
