About Cornerstone

General Info

Cornerstone is designed to assist new undergraduate students in their transition to Georgetown by providing opportunities for extended mentoring and small-group connection with peer leaders and other new students. Groups share a meal provided by Cornerstone and participate in an open-ended conversation, facilitated by a peer mentor, highlighting a topics related to college adjustment.

Cornerstone creates a space of reflection, goal-setting, and open conversation about the Georgetown experience and how students can find their footing moving forward.  Whether it’s to make new friends, talk about goals for getting involved, or to connect with a peer mentor, Cornerstone can serve as a launch point for new students looking to take the next step forward in navigating Georgetown.

Cornerstone is supervised by the office of Orientation, Transition, and Family Engagement in the Division of Student Affairs.

Statement of Purpose

The Cornerstone Initiative is a series of weekly discussion groups that provide a space for first-year students to develop the tools to effectively transition to college life. Led by a trained peer mentor, each group will work together to build a community, make meaning out of their experiences and, through reflection and discussion, lay a foundation for their future on the Hilltop.
