GEORGETOWN, Ky. – The Offices of Admission and Student Life will welcome the first wave of new students for Tiger Orientation 101 on Friday, June 20. It’s the first of three early-bird orientation sessions scheduled this summer to enable incoming students the opportunity to get a head-start for fall.
Formerly known as Early Registration Workshop, the revamped program renamed Tiger Orientation 101 enables incoming freshmen to finalize their class schedules and financial planning, obtain their official G-Card student identification, attend an information fair and do much more. It’s also a great time for students to connect with members of their incoming class and get to know their future classmates.
Check-in for the 112 students who have signed-up for the day begins at 8 a.m. in the foyer of Ensor Learning Resource Center. They and their parents will then attend a formal welcoming session in John L. Hill Chapel presided over by President M. Dwaine Greene and Dean of Students Laura Wyly.
Academic advising, residence hall tours, establishment of student accounts, finalization of financial aid and an overall student life review are among the sessions planned for the day. Family members and other student guests will attend sessions aimed at providing them information for supporting their Georgetown College student who is transitioning to a new home away from home.
A second Tiger Orientation 101 is scheduled for June 27 and a third on July 25. Freshmen move-in day is Thursday, August 21, with further orientation workshops and get-acquainted sessions scheduled through Sunday, August 24. Fall classes begin Monday, August 25.
Future Georgetown College Tigers who have not registered for a Tiger Orientation 101 are urged to contact the Office of Admission right away.
