Hey everyone! I’m a senior Spanish major from Paris, KY and I’ve been involved with orientation every year since I was going through it as a freshman! I just spent the last year in Spain finishing up my major and I plan to spend the rest of my time at Georgetown completing minors in biology and chemistry to eventually become a physician assistant. On campus, you can find me in the McCandless house with the Spanish Immersion Program, in the quad particpating in Greek Life activities or in the Mulberry finishing a paper for the Honors Program. I look forward to welcoming you guys to become part of the Georgetown community I have loved for the last 3 years.
I’m so glad you guys have chosen Georgetown as your home for the next few years of your lives. I am currently a Senior, and pursuing a degree in Communication and a minor in Business Administration.

I hope that you are able to find at least one organization to be a part of so that you can enjoy everything college has to offer. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to ask me or any of our awesome orientation leaders. Welcome to Tiger Nation!

Welcome to Georgetown!!!
We are so excited to have you all here! My name is Natalie Fiepke and I will be a sophomore this year. I am still undecided on a major but will be minoring in art, with hopes of eventually going to Dentistry School. Being on the tennis team occupies a lot of my time, especially in the spring, but getting involved on campus has really made me love Georgetown. The small size is what makes Georgetown College so great! The professors truly care about you and love to see the impact you all make on campus and in the community.
The reason I was dying to become an Orientation Leader was because of the impact Orientation had on me last fall. Before Georgetown, I was someone who never had to make a new friend group because my friends and I grew up and then graduated together. Those first few days gave me the opportunity to step out of my comfort zone to meet new people in my situation and to start developing friendships. Because of this, I have made amazing friends and can’t wait for you all to do the same!
Make yourselves at home and if you have any questions don’t hesitate to ask!
Welcome Everyone. My name is Corey Goad and I am starting my sophomore year majoring in the pre-med program with a minor in business.

You will look back on these first weeks here at Georgetown as being some of the most exciting and meaningful experiences in your social and academic life.

You will grow in so many ways outside of academics in your years here at Georgetown College. I can’t wait to help you fall in love with this wonderful community, and to make this school your home away from home. See you soon!
