Student-Alumni Connections

Connect with Students Alumna Serena Auñón, SEAS BS '97, connects with students about her experience as a NASA astronaut.

The support of GW's global network of alumni enhances the student experience from their first day at Colonial Inauguration through graduation on the National Mall. By connecting with alumni, current GW students can:

  • learn more about prospective degree fields
  • network in D.C.
  • receive excellent career or professional advice

“I want to help students while they’re in school and once they move into the working world – so they feel a lifetime of giving back to the school. There’s a culture of giving back to the university and I want to continue it and make it even better.”

Philip Leibow, GWSB '87 & '89
