Student Orientation and Registration

We are excited to welcome our newest Saints and their families to campus at our Saints Orientation, Advising, and Registration (SOAR) 2022 events. This is a great one-day event to prepare incoming students for a smooth and successful transition to Holy Cross College. New students are expected to attend a SOAR and complete any additional materials as needed.​ 

Registration for new student orientation programs happens through your student portal, and this summer’s events will take place on the following dates:

  • June 17
  • July 8
  • August 5

Aside from Academic Advising, you’ll get to hear and interact with many members of the Holy Cross College community. You’ll hear from the Student Success Team, Financial Aid & Student Accounts, Health & Counseling Services, Residential Life, Student Life, Campus Ministry, and even meet some current Holy Cross students!

By the end of the day, you’ll be on your way to being a Saint!

SOAR is an all-day event that will take place from approximately 9:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m. To see a tentative schedule for SOAR, students should log into their Portals. There will also be a separate guest track for certain parts of the day. In addition, we advise students and guests to keep an eye out on their emails as their SOAR date gets closer for general information about SOAR and about an event that’ll take place the evening before!

Resident Life

In single rooms and shared apartments, Saints love living on campus because it provides an amazing opportunity to form close-knit friendships that will last a lifetime. Students also find that living on campus places you at the heart of the action—just a short walk from your classes, St. Joseph Chapel, the McKenna Library, and the Pfeil Recreation Center.
