ROAR, required for all incoming MSOE freshman, is about the people, places, and programs that will become your new academic home. At ROAR you will gain knowledge, skills, and connections to turn you into the master of MSOE.

MSOE's ROAR:

  • Offers students and their parents/guardians an opportunity to be connected to MSOE and prepare them for their upcoming transition to college
  • Gives students an opportunity to learn about the registration process and receive their first term schedules
  • Provides financial aid, students accounts (payment plan info), residence life (roommate info.) and campus life information sessions
  • Creates opportunities to meet with key support staff that will aid in their success as a student
  • Helps students activate official campus account including email
  • Helps students get an official campus Student ID
  • Gives students an opportunity get to know new Raiders and to have fun

And don’t forget to bring your parent, guardian or trustworthy note-taker. Your two guests will get a chance to attend their own sessions on financial aid, parent and family fund, and tips to supporting your success while at MSOE. Guests will have fun on a Milwaukee adventure, ready to meet back up by the end of your day!
