Welcome Jaguar parents and family! Jaguar Nation Welcome, Augusta University’s new student orientation, is designed to prepare new students for college life at Augusta University. Students, family members, parents & guests will attend programs with an academic focus as well as programs that will expose everyone to the many student services available on campus. In Housing and Residence Life, we look forward to welcoming you to campus and answering any questions you may have about living on campus with us. Please note that each new student is required to attend a Jaguar Nation Welcome orientation session! Below are some helpful tips about Jaguar Nation Welcome.
What is R.O.A.R. Camp?
R.O.A.R. (Residence Orientation And Recreation) Camp is the premier extended orientation experience for all first-year students living on campus. It aims to assist students in making a successful academic and social transition to Augusta University. Students are able to create a sense of community and belonging with other freshman residents, engage in traditions of Housing and Residence Life, and strengthen their bond to Augusta University.
What can my student expect?
Students can expect to meet new people, learn about themselves, and learn about life at Augusta University through a wide range of activities. R.O.A.R. Camp builds on your students’ experience from New Student Orientation. Students are placed in small groups with a R.O.A.R. Camp Mentor.
Why should my student attend?
Oak Hall Residents are required to participate in ROAR Camp. It is scheduled for students several days before classes to prepare them for the academic and social success.
What if my student does not want to participate in R.O.A.R. Camp?
R.O.A.R. Camp is designed to help your student be successful in their first year of college. All different types of students participate in R.O.A.R., and all come from different places and have a variety of interests and experiences. We want all of our students to learn what it means to be a part of Jaguar Nation.
Do I get to attend R.O.A.R. Camp?
R.O.A.R. Camp is an event that is exclusive for our residents living in Oak Hall. Friends, family, and other students (upper-class students, students who live off-campus, commuter students) are not allowed to participate. We invite you to stay connected with your student and Augusta University by visiting the Parent and Family Connections webpage.
