Orientation Advisors Outside the Front Gates

Congratulations to our newly admitted Georgetown students! We look forward to orienting you this Spring to life on the Hilltop.  Spring 2020 New Student Orientation (NSO) will take place January 5-7, including move-in on January 5 and mandatory orientation programs on January 6-7.  The first day of classes is Wednesday, January 8, 2020.  Whether you are a first-year, transfer, or international student, NSO is an exciting experience where you prepare for the next few years on campus, meet current students, staff, and faculty, and establish connections with other new students.
