Every year during commencement we hold a special reception for Legacy students and families. This open house features hors d'oeuvres and a celebratory toast in honor of our graduates. To capture this special moment, you will receive a framed, professional photograph of your family to take home. Please check back soon for details about the 2020 reception.
Legacy families can volunteer to serve in a variety of ways—from representing GW at a regional Admissions fair to attending a Summer Send-Off to speak to first year families—there are countless ways to make an impact on the GW community.
Volunteering is an excellent way to stay connected and ensure that the GW legacy is sustained for years to come. We look forward to connecting you to an opportunity that is most meaningful to you.
At GW, we are continually amazed by the incredible, enduring support from our GW Legacy families. Through this invaluable generosity, GW can continue providing a consistently high-quality educational experience for our students. Philanthropy at all levels enables GW to develop forward-thinking programs, offer meaningful curricula, provide enhanced student services for career development, and build programs to engage students with our accomplished GW alumni community.
