First Year Students

Welcome to the Class of 2020! Students in their first year at the George Washington University can expect a warm welcome to their new home. CSE is here to assist in your transition to the university and help you find your place at GW and in DC. From the moment you set foot on campus, you will be welcomed by our dedicated staff of undergraduate and graduate students and full-time professionals. Make sure to connect with your Resident Advisor (RA). They will help you navigate your first year at GW.

The CSE Residential Engagement Team does everything from the programming in the residence halls to providing advice and support in helping students find their unique place at GW. With staff on both the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon campuses, we are here to connect you to all the resources and opportunities that GW offers. We want you to begin your four year journey on the right foot, so you can take full advantage of the opportunities to get involved, make new friends, and start gaining the experience and development that only GW can provide.
