Spring Orientation Day

After students complete move-in, Spring Orientation takes place on Friday, January 13, 2023!

Spring Orientation aims to provide a mix of fun and educational components to help students transition and acclimatize to the GW community. Students will be provided with plenty of opportunities to connect with one another, from their residence halls, their colleges, and from across campus.

We have a lot of exciting things in the works for Spring Orientation, and we can't wait to welcome you to campus and have you experience it! Below is a general outline of what to expect for events and programming during Spring Orientation.
