Gamecock Orientation

Spring 2019 Orientation GuideWelcome to the JSU Gamecock Orientation Program! This is the place where you can get your college career off to a great start!

First-year students under the age of 25 are required to attend GO! before beginning their first semester at Jacksonville State University. We look forward to introducing you to a campus community filled with academic opportunities, rich traditions, and friendly people.

Along the way, you'll meet our GO! Leaders and GO! Specialists, who can't wait to get to know you. These enthusiastic guides know the JSU experience inside and out, and are committed to providing you with all the tools you need to achieve academic and personal success. Each Orientation session is designed to meet your needs and the needs of your family so that you may grow and thrive at JSU.

Orientation is just the beginning of a very exciting time in your life; we hope that your GO! experience will be a most enriching and rewarding way to start your JSU journey!
