At orientation, incoming students will be introduced to the people, places, processes and programs that help provide a successful transition into the Georgia State University community. When students leave orientation, they will be registered for the first semester of classes. New student orientation leaders, Georgia State students, will assist incoming students throughout the day. They want incoming students to ask questions, have fun and get to know Georgia State. Since orientation provides a lot of important information in a short period of time, incoming students will be very busy.
