Welcome New Bobcats!

We also want to make sure you receive adequate preparation for the academic and social life that awaits you as a college student. We will assist you throughout orientation, registration, advisement, housing options, and move-in for on-campus students. We have a staff of professionals and current faculty that work together to make certain that your transition into college life is as smooth as possible.

What is P.A.W.S.?

The P.A.W.S. (Preparing, Advising, and Welcoming Students) Orientation program is a mandatory program for all new EGSC Freshman and Transfer students. The program provides students and their families with a more informed understanding of resources, policies, and new student expectations. Key elements include informational sessions for students and parents, a group academic advisement session sorted by majors, and course registration. Attending orientation is a crucial step as you transition from high school, another college or university, the military or work. Because we consider this information vital to your academic success, all first-year students to EGSC are required to complete the online Orientation.
