SOAR Week is May 16-19, and everyone is invited to join in celebrating SOAR's 10th anniversary!

The Southern Oregon Arts & Research conference is a weeklong showcase event that takes place all across campus with presentations, demonstrations, and events occurring all day, every day. Students and SOU employees will share their passions and accomplishments with the community, showing off the brilliance and creativity found at SOU.

This year's conference officially kicks off with the ICC Club Crawl on Tuesday, May 16. Student clubs and organizations will take over the SU Courtyard with tables and demonstrations of the many ways that student clubs promote campus engagement. While you're there, help yourself to a free taco lunch, courtesy of ICC and SOAR.

Throughout SOAR Week there will be presentations on topics ranging from microbiology to European travels, including panel groups and symposia from many areas of campus. This year also features several larger events like the 4th Annual Emerging Media Convention (EMCon4) and even a Quidditch tournament!
