SOS Orientation Leaders

Welcome to the Auburn Family!

Congratulations on your acceptance to Auburn University! We look forward to hosting you at Successfully Orienting Students (SOS). Through SOS, we will provide an experience which will promote the academic, social and personal success of incoming transfer students. We hope our website will provide all necessary information and instructions to prepare you for your orientation session and your first year at Auburn University.
