Tiger Tracks: Student Life
A collaboration between GC Academic Success & the Ensor LRC.
From the very beginning of your collegiate career, First Year Programs is there to help create opportunities for you to connect with your fellow students, faculty, and staff. Your GC journey begins during PAWS, through your New Student Orientation, and beyond to help you create meaningful relationships, achieve academic success, and grow as a person.
All of our new students are invited to attend a PAWS Day! Each Planning and Advising Workshop (PAWS) Day is designed to prepare incoming, first-year students to begin classes in the fall and create early connections between students, faculty, and staff. PAWS Days are also open for parents and guests to attend so they can learn how best to support their GC student.

New Student Orientation takes place the weekend before classes begin for the Fall Semester. Orientation is designed to help welcome new students to campus and help them feel at home on campus, begin new relationships with fellow students, and engage with their new community.
The Orientation Coordinators and Leaders are the heart and soul of orientation weekend! These current students are here to welcome you to campus and provide a sounding board for any questions you might have about campus life or the transition to college, how classes are at Georgetown College and what the best places to eat in town, and help to answer all the thousands of questions you might have.
Everyone has questions as they begin a new adventure, like coming to college. Here are some answers to the biggest questions that we’ve gotten.
First Year Program Events
First-Year Programs is excited to provide events and activities throughout the year to help first-year students feel at home at Georgetown College and provide tools to be successful! In 2017-2018, the #ADULTING events included topics such as: alcohol and safety awareness, healthy relationships, time management and organization, fitness and nutrition, healthy sexual behavior, and financial wellness. Stay tuned to find out what else is coming!
The Student Code of Conduct establishes the rules and regulations for all students and student
organizations of Georgetown College. Students of Georgetown College are expected to conduct
themselves in a manner befitting a civilized society, on College-owned or controlled property, at College-sponsored or supervised functions, and elsewhere. Students enrolling at Georgetown College assume an obligation to conduct themselves in a manner compatible with the College’s function as an educational institution.
Georgetown College takes the safety of the college community very seriously. In an effort to keep the community better informed during an emergency situation, be sure to sign up for emergency text and email alerts through the GC Portal.
Through the various collegiate ministries who serve on our campus (including Awaken Love Prayer and Worship Ministry, F.C.A. - Fellowship of Christian Athletes, Newman Center – Catholic Student Ministry, Campus Outreach and others) we live into the vision of Faith and Service which involves each member of the Georgetown College community experiencing the love of Christ in life-changing ways.
The worship of God is a central feature of life at Georgetown College. Approximately six times each semester, the College gathers for worship in the John L. Hill Chapel at 11 am on Tuesday mornings. These services are intended to provide challenge and inspiration, to appeal to the head and the heart, and to expose our students to diverse speakers and worship traditions.
Retreats/Adventure Travel/Mission Trips
Faith and Service also sponsors several trips each year for students to help them to serve others, to connect with God and nature, and to build stronger relationships with one another. Over the past few years, these trips have included a mountaineering and white-water rafting trip to Grandfather Mountain, N.C., and Spring Break retreat/service trips to Orange Beach, AL and to Camden, N.J.
The Student Life Office offers an intramural program consisting of a wide variety of competitive and non-competitive recreational opportunities. Participation is open to all Georgetown College students (residential and commuter), faculty and staff regardless of athletic ability. Team and individual sign-up deadlines are posted throughout the year.
