At FAU, “family” is defined as anyone our students feel impacts their lives, through trust, love, and support. Adult family members who are interested in attending SOAR with their student(s) are strongly encouraged to do so. First-Year Family SOAR is held concurrently with the student program; parts of the family program are separate from the student program and some of the content is experienced together.
Family SOAR provides an opportunity to see and learn about FAU in a deeper way and make connections with university staff and other families. It also provides families with the tools to be of support to their new FAU student(s).
