SOAR Schedule

On behalf of the McMurry community, we are excited to officially welcome you as War Hawks! We hope you find the next two days informative and affirming. SOAR is designed to introduce you to the great opportunities waiting for you at McMurry and to help you begin to find your place in our community. You will receive your fall classes and have the chance to meet with faculty who can answer your questions about majors, core requirements, and ways to get involved with your academic interest area. You will also have the opportunity to meet other new students and current students who will be able to answer your questions about college. You will have the opportunity to experience residence hall living and explore ways to get involved in campus traditions. If you have questions while you are here for SOAR, please do not hesitate to ask. We are here for you!
