GEORGETOWN, KY – Scott County’s population will increase by a few hundred people for several hours on Saturday, March 29, as Georgetown College welcomes new students for the annual “Today’s Tigers: An Admitted Student Celebration.”

It is held to recognize entering students who will be among the class of 2018. School officials expect at least 250 admitted students and their families for this exclusive event.

Welcome #Tigernation! #GeorgetownProud

Welcome #Tigernation!

Beginning at 9 a.m., faculty, staff, current students and alumni will answer questions, provide insight, and immerse new Tigers and their families in the Georgetown College culture.

“Today’s Tigers is a personal welcome for each admitted student into the Tiger Nation,” said Lauren Williams, senior admissions counselor, who is coordinating the event.

Admitted students will have the opportunity to meet professors and sample classes. In addition, campus organizations will host booths on the south campus Mills Quad to introduce students to the various ways in which they can become involved in campus life.

Local community organizations will be represented also. Georgetown/Scott County Tourism, for example, will be present to help new students learn about activities and events available to them off-campus.

Any admitted student who received an invitation but who has not registered should contact the Office of Admissions at (502) 863-8009 or respond to the personalized link in their mailed invitation. More information.
