What do you offer?
At the SOAR Center we offer a space for students to study, receive information on outreach and retention projects at UCI. We have a mentoring program and workshops aimed at helping students reach their highest level of success here at UCI. Students can also access literature about many of the departments and resources available to them here on campus. Students can and are encouraged to come and just relax in a space that is energetic and welcoming.
Do you offer free printing?
Unfortunately, we do not offer free printing. When the referendum for the SOAR Center failed to pass during the Spring 2011 quarter, we did not receive funding to offer this service and other amenities in the referendum. However, students can print next door at the Langson Library.
What are your hours of operation?
We are open from 9:00AM to 7:00PM Monday through Thursday and 9:00AM to 5:00PM on Fridays.
Do you provide funding for student organizations?
SOAR does provide limited funding for organizations. We encourage student organizations that are currently or thinking of doing outreach programs in the local communities to apply for funding through the Student Initiated Academic Program. Students can submit a funding request form online ( www.cfep.uci.edu/siap). The SOAR Center also offers regular workshops to assist student groups in preparing funding request as well as informational sessions focusing on strategies for groups to be effective when working with youth.
Can my club/organization reserve the multipurpose room for a meeting or a private study session?
Unfortunately, we do not take room reservations as the multipurpose room serves as an open study space for students.
