SOAR (Students Organizations Achieving Recognition)
What is SOAR?
SOAR stands for Students Organizations Achieving Recognition, and for those of you who are unfamiliar with this program, it is a 5-tiered challenge program that is designed to help student organizations achieve their goals while also earning different rewards. The program was implemented in the Spring of 2016 by several members of the Student Government Association and has shown consistent success since it's unveiling. Throughout the academic year, SOAR, which is led primarily by the House of Representatives in SGA, presents several workshops focused on helping student organizations on campus to achieve their goals.
Why is SOAR Endorsement so Important?
Another great benefit of the SOAR program is that SOAR can endorse events led by student organizations. SOAR endorsement is a great way to promote events, as events that meet our criteria can be broadcasted on our social media as well as communicated to all Wright State students. Endorsements can boost attendance at specific events as well as promote the organization itself.
