Or go to your “Prelude” session, if you’re too hungover or don’t feel like it. There will be no housing lottery penalty, as is sometimes suggested at NSO.

This is a good education for you in the fact that Georgetown is crazy dysfunctional. So if you think that Georgetown will punish you for missing some minor event (including, yes, the “mandatory” ones), they won’t.

If their priorities were straight, it could be much better than it is. But if things are as they used to be, way too much of NSO is an NSO captain circle-jerk.

This year the week’s theme is Back in the Saddle, encouraging students to jump into campus life and start the year ahead of the herd. The events are a great way to find groups to join, eat free food, meet new people, and spend time with people you already know. Full schedule available here: http://studentorgs.georgetown.edu/welcomeweek/ with regular updates available on Twitter (http://twitter.com/guwelcomeweek). See you there!

The OAs are there as resources for the new students, not just to consistently do icebreakers all day and night. Admittedly, it’s largely up to the freshmen and transfers if they want to participate, but like anything else, NSO will be what they make of it and I think most people would tell you that they get out what they put in. Give it a fair shot and I think you will see that it doesn’t quite live up to the reputation it garners from a vocal minority. The fact that over 500 people applied for 180 OA spots speaks to that.

This is a lie.

Honestly, NSO will suck, but don’t worry it gets better.

I made it through a whole 3 pages of my assigned book before handing it to my parents to take back home with them. I ditched the lecture and had a way better time exploring DC with high school friends at American.

That being said, I hated NSO with a passion. Find an activity or two that you love and throw yourself into it. Almost all of my closest friends at Georgetown came from clubs or through people in clubs.
