PAWS is a one-day new student orientation program during the summer where students:
We are currently hoping to offer the PAWS orientation program in-person. More information about format or optional virtual sessions will be made available late in the Spring semester.
Each PAWS session will be limited a certain number of students, so we strongly encourage you to register early in order to get the date that best fits your schedule!
Sessions will be taken off the registration form once they reach capacity. This may happen before the registration deadline!
At Greensboro College we understand that transferring to a new college can be a stressful and confusing time and that your needs are different from those of an incoming first-year student. That is why we designed a special Transfers Only PAWS (PAWS-T) with you in mind! Transfer students can choose to attend a traditional, first-year PAWS program or the Transfers Only PAWS program.
PAWS-T will take place on Monday, July 26 – Deadline to register is Wednesday, July 21
All PAWS and PAWS-T programs are first-come, first-served, and you must be registered to attend!
To register for a PAWS or PAWS-T program, follow these simple steps:
If you have trouble logging into your Empower Pride Page, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
As you complete the registration form, please answer every question to the best of your knowledge. This will help us give you the best PAWS experience possible. Once you have registered, return to this page for information on how to prepare for your PAWS program.
