Your #OnlyatGW Moments

Dana Tai Soon Burgess & Ben Sanders

#OnlyatGW moments don’t necessarily happen on campus in Washington, D.C., or even in the United States, a lesson GW Theater and Dance Chairman Dana Tai Soon Burgess and student Ben Sanders learned while making special connections with students in Suriname through the language of art.

Amy O’Halloran

Amy O’Halloran’s trip to the local grocery store turned into a discussion about economic policy. What makes this an Only at GW moment? Her conversation partner was International Monetary Fund Managing Director Christine Lagarde.

Alexander Melton

When Alexander Melton is looking for that inspirational push to finish his homework, he hops the Metro over to the Library of Congress, where he can wrap up that term paper under the watchful gaze of one of America’s greatest presidents.

Ian Tang

GW students start making history the second they step on campus: Ian Tang helped organize TEDx Foggy Bottom, an event aimed at generating and sharing ideas that help change the world.


Caio Lopes

Why settle for studying art in a book when you could see it in person? Caio Lopes cherishes his lessons at the National Gallery of Art, a world-class museum where he can learn about paintings by Van Gogh, Winogrand’s photography or even ancient Roman sculpture — just blocks away from GW’s Foggy Bottom campus.

Fan Zhang

Instead of looking down at your phone, take in the scenery. You’ll never guess who Fan Zhang ran into, gaining her lots of followers on Twitter as she shared her Only at GW moment.

Maddison Bruer

Children and their families are not the only ones who have fun at the White House Easter Egg Roll. GW student Maddison Bruer had the Only at GW honor of greeting guests as Mama Bunny. Not a bad internship assignment.

Patrick Madl

Caffeine’s not the only thing that will keep you on your toes during mid-terms. How about running into your idol and snapping your best Only at GW selfie? That’s what happened to Patrick Madl at the Starbucks on campus.

Lincoln Mondy

At GW, students have a front row seat to history. For Lincoln Mondy, that meant a front row seat to see Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor at Lisner Auditorium. And you'll never believe who he was sitting next to.

Carlee Gray

Junior Carlee Gray can snap a great photo on Instagram. But Only at GW would she get a chance to wake up to watch the sun rise over the monuments.
