As the fall semester is winding down and finals are just a few weeks away, you may be feeling as though you have finally gotten settled in here. You know where all the buildings around campus are located and you feel like you have finally learned the ropes of being a Roger Williams student. Now that you are feeling at home here you may wish you had gotten more involved in campus clubs and organizations and perhaps you want to become a student leader and share your RWU spirit with other students. Well, it is never too late to get involved at RWU and a great program to participate in is the SOAR program!

SOAR is a leadership program based off the Social Change Model, an idea that leadership consists of three parts: the individual, the group, and the community.  The program is broken down into three tiers, each of which focuses on a different aspect of the model. 

Involvement Fair

Key. Check. ID card. Check. Phone. Check.

As I gather my things to depart my dorm room from Cedar Hall, I feel myself filled with many questions and anxieties. I have been at college for over a week now and, although, coming to preseason and meeting my cross country teammates has relieved a lot of the disquiet in my mind about my freshmen year, I still had a lot of questions about what lay ahead. At that current moment it was: what was going to be at this involvement fair? What should I sign up for? What kinds of people will I meet there? I leave my dorm and arrive at the quad where it is filled with many tables and friendly faces.  On the tables were sheets, info graphics about that particular club, and LOTS of free stuff.
