    Arrival & New Students Orientation (NSO)

    What's will be the theme for NSO 2014? NSO schedule information will be updated online in June 2014.

Greetings New Students, Parents and Family,

Congratulations! Your admission into Georgetown University is a testament to your personal and academic accomplishments. You have chosen an institution that values and supports your individual contributions. We want to empower you in and out of the classroom to make a positive impact in the lives of others while reaching your highest potential.

We are eager to welcome you to New Student Orientation (NSO) this summer. During your NSO experience, you will explore new ideas and concepts. Learn how to get involved. Explore ways of making a difference in your collegiate experience. Maybe even discover a new passion. Above all we hope that you will have fun and make friends that last a lifetime.

As you prepare to make the transition to Georgetown, make sure to take advantage of all the resources at your disposal. In addition to this website, take some time to read the New Student Welcome Packet we’ll mail you this summer, consider attending a Pre-Orientation Program, and explore the opportunities found in our partner offices. Also, stay on the lookout for an email from your Orientation Advisor (OA) in early August.

If at any point you have a question, please let us know either by e-mailing or by calling (202) 687.3906. We look forward to personally welcoming you to the hilltop shortly.

Hoya Saxa!

Justin Smith
Director of Orientation

NSO & PFO Vision Statement

We have planned New Student Orientation (NSO) and Parent and Family Orientation (PFO) with four outcomes in mind:

  • For students and families to be aware of the Jesuit, academic, cultural and social expectations of living within the Georgetown community
  • For students and families to understand the purpose and breadth of curricular and co-curricular opportunities at Georgetown
  • For students and families to establish healthy relationships and build strong connections to Georgetown
  • For students and families to feel prepared for the students’ first semester at Georgetown


In addition to NSO, we offer a variety of Pre-Orientation Programs aimed at helping students acclimate and transition to Georgetown. These optional programs have limited space and require an application so pay close attention to the dates and registration timeline for each program.

You are encouraged to check back here throughout the summer for more information about NSO registration and events. We look forward to welcoming you to Georgetown on August 23, 2014. Hoya Saxa!
