What is GWOW?

Georgetown Weeks of Welcome (GWOW) takes place over the first six weeks of the Fall semester and involves large-scale programming to welcome new students, returning students, faculty, and staff back to Georgetown.

GWOW hopes to provide a valuable opportunity to embrace the new school year by bringing the community. It is a time to encourage student involvement, boost school spirit, and create lifelong memories! This year, GWOW will host events virtually to connect new Hoyas to other Georgetown students and build community in the first few weeks of school.
