In preparation for Fall 2015, all first-year students will read The Other Wes Moore by Wes Moore. Each incoming first-year student will receive a copy of the book during summer orientation, with the expectation that it be read before returning in August. By reading the book over the summer, students will arrive on campus prepared to engage in discussions using the book as a springboard to introduce critical thinking and begin the first steps toward creating a community of learners by encouraging all students to join in and be part of the discussions during the Week of Welcome.
As a part of this year's program, Georgia College is preparing a new experience. First Year Convocation will be a bookend to Commencement, and is GC's official welcome for all first-year students. We will celebrate the Class of 2019 by convening all 1,430 members of the class to help realize their identity as a class and, at the same time, remind them of the privileges and responsibilities associated with their place in the Georgia College community.

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Georgia College!
