The SOAR Center firmly believes in the power of students to motivate their peers. SOAR promotes and supports student initiated projects to fully involve and engage students at UCI. Advised by Professional Staff, Student Coordinators work directly with student leaders to plan, organize, and implement their outreach and retention projects on and off campus.
Professional Staff conduct academic consultations and meet with students who are facing academic challenges, need guidance, or want to explore post-graduation pathways. The Dreamer Coordinator provides specialize services and resources for undocumented students, also referred to as Dreamers. To book an appointment with a Professional Staff: link to appointment page
The hours of operation of the SOAR Center were Monday-Thursday (9am-7pm) & Friday (9am-5pm). SOAR serves as an information hub operated by trained staff who provided information about campus programs, services, and resources. Unless there was a workshop, program, or event in session, the Multi-Purpose Room (MPR) was available for students to study, gather, and build community.
The Food Pantry is open to all UCI students, and can be accessed using their UCI student ID. Its hours of operations are Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursday 10am-1pm. For more information: link to Food Pantry page
