Orientation Week

Orientation Week

After students complete move-in, Orientation Week begins! Orientation Week aims to provide a mix of fun and educational components to help students transition and acclimatize to the GW community and becoming a college student. Students will be provided with plenty of opportunities to connect with one another, from their residence halls, their colleges, and from across campus. There will also be opportunities to explore D.C. beyond the GW campus during Orientation Week.

Your schedule will be available in an app, available later this summer.

Additionally, there will be programming specifically for Parents, Families, and Supporters.
