Highlights

bit daunted by your first philosophy paper or formal lab report? Need help perfecting a cover letter or spiffing up a resume? Have no idea how to tackle the ambiguous prompt your professor just passed out? Come visit the Writing Center on Lau 2!
 
The Writing Center offers FREE tutoring services to all Georgetown students for any and all written work. Whether you are putting the finishing touches on your paper or just starting an outline, we are here to help you along the way.
 

The Academic Resource Center has a two-fold mission:

1) to provide accommodations to students with disabilities as a means to ensure equity and access to programs and facilities, and

2) to offer academic assistance to students by providing study skills workshops, tutoring services in the area of foreign languages, and individual consultations. 

The Georgetown Scholarship Program (GSP) serves Georgetown students that are often the first in their families to attend college, and come from a lower income background. They are true trailblazers both at home and on campus. GSP provides its students with the resources and opportunities that will help them to succeed at Georgetown and beyond.  Within GSP, students have access to an accomplished alumni network, career assistance, mentoring programs, campus connections and more.

Hey Hoyas,
 
Welcome home! We are Enushe Khan and Chris Fisk—President and Vice-President of the Georgetown University Student Association  (GUSA), your student government. We work to improve student life on campus through a wide range of issue areas ranging from dining, housing, and arts, to athletics, mental health, safety/sexual assault, accessibility, transfer affairs, other issues of inclusivity and a lot more!
 

Visit our office in Sellinger Lounge if you are in the mood for karaoke, if you want to talk about anything you'd like to advocate for on campus, or if you just want to hangout. We are here for you—reach out if you’d like to chat about getting involved in GUSA, navigating campus resources, or our mutual love of Chipotle.

Welcome to the Hoya family and we can’t wait to meet you! 

XOXO,
Enushe & Chris

Georgetown University's Center for Student Engagement is committed to providing learning and development opportunities, which complement our Jesuit identity and students' educational experiences. We empower and partner with students to create a vibrant and pluralistic campus community through: leadership opportunities that foster integrity and collaboration; high quality programs that spark curiosity and inspire action; and reflective practice that deepens self-knowledge and awareness. 

The InterHall Council works with the Office of Residential Living to oversee all of the residential spaces on campus. We put on programs and study breaks open to all students throughout the year as well as provide funding and advocacy for hall councils and other student groups on campus.

​The Department of Performing Arts offers an exciting array of interdisciplinary programs and artistic pursuits that can enrich your Georgetown experience! Visit our website to explore performance ensembles in Music, Theater, and Dance; degree programs; and studio classes as well as seminars with slots reserved for New Students. Come by our OPEN HOUSE in the DAVIS CENTER LOBBY  Tuesday, August 30, 2:30-4pm, to sign up for auditions and meet faculty and students.

    The New Student Welcome Packet will serve as your guide to the coming year at Georgetown. Find the digital version here and for further information visit our website. If you have any further questions, please email us at nso@georgetown.edu.
     

    It is with great excitement that we bring you Georgetown Mobile, the app that empowers its students and staff with information about Georgetown and New Student Orientation (NSO) at the palm of their hand. Be sure to download it at  m.georgetown.edu or in the App Store for iOS and Android devices before arriving to the Hilltop!

    Tip #1
    You might have noticed that by July 29th this thing called pre-registration must be completed, but what is it? Pre-registration is essentially where you select your class preferences for the coming semester. From core requirements to interesting electives, you create your schedule. For more information on Pre-registration, click here.
     
    Tip #2
    CHARMS: a roommate-matching program based on the preferences and qualities one would like in a potential roommate – it's like online dating for roommates! Though it may be nerve-racking or intimidating at first, be yourself when filling out the CHARMS questionnaire, as it will try to match you with those people who truly want to know you. Who knows? You might even match with a future best friend!
     
    Tip #3
    You’ll meet a lot of classmates during NSO, and it’ll be difficult to remember every single one of them. Don’t worry. This will happen to nearly everyone. Don’t be afraid to ask for someone’s name, introduce yourself, and revel in the crazy excitement that is NSO.
