New Student Orientation

At Paul Smith’s College, we know that choosing which college to attend is one of the most important decisions you will make as a family. The pursuit of higher education is a journey, one that opens doors and expands opportunities – and we want to make sure Paul Smith’s is a perfect match for your family.

Our Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) sessions offer an immersive experience for students to visit the campus, meet new and returning students, get to know their faculty members on a personal basis explore teamwork opportunities and – most importantly – begin the process of transitioning into a collegiate atmosphere.

This is also the time for your family to meet with Academic Support Services on campus to finalize your financial aid plan, meet with a student advisor and for your child to begin to develop their academic plan.

Held in multiple sessions each summer, SOAR also includes plenty of time to explore our beautiful Adirondack campus on the shores of Lower St. Regis Lake. Your child must be confirmed for the fall 2014 semester before he or she can register to attend a SOAR session. Stay tuned for 2014 dates!
