Jay Chats are intended to help new students and their families during their transition to and first year at Etown. They are hosted by our director of new student/family orientation via Zoom; they are interactive sessions where you'll be able to ask questions and hear from others. Click on the Jay Chat's title for the Zoom link (available the week before) or recording (available the day after the Jay Chat).
Intended for the families of new students who began in Fall 2023.
