What is a SOA?

Orientation assistants serve as a resource to incoming students and their families. They work hard to provide information to new students who will help them settle in, get to know other students, and register for classes. They act as a friendly guide for the first week, welcoming students to campus and serving as familiar faces in the upper-class student population for first-year and transfer students.
