Orientation and Welcome Week

Orientation is designed to prepare you for the MS-ESM program by providing introductory tools to help you succeed, familiarize you with standards and expectations, and most importantly, welcome you to the Georgetown community. For example, sessions with MS-ESM leadership; sessions with your program coordinator and current students; a scavenger hunt around Georgetown’s historic campus and neighborhood; and sessions with your Career Coach. Orientation will also feature an optional evening networking event to kickstart cohort bonding and development.

Mark the following dates on your calendar for Orientation as a general guide. Sessions will be held in person on campus.
