Election night at George Washington University is best described by our students. As one student put it on Twitter, "Being in DC on Election Day is like being a kid on Christmas! #onlyatGW." That enthusiasm is why we're regularly named the nation's most politically active school. As many of our students vote for the first time and watch the election results just blocks from the White House, we want to bring the Election Night at GW experience to our entire GW community.
That's why we'll be using this page to live stream and live-tweet the entire night. Join in the conversation on Twitter with the hashtag — #GWElectionDay.

The season-ticket holder renewal period for George Washington men's and women's basketball is underway.

Tickets for men's games will include an exhibition game plus all 14 regular-season home contests at the Charles E. Smith Center, highlighted by a visit from Big 12 foe Kansas State on Dec. 8 and a date with Atlantic 10 newcomer Butler once conference play begins in January.
Along with season tickets being available for 15 men's home dates, season seats for the GW women's basketball team under new head coach Jonathan Tsipis are now available. Coach Tsipis, who comes to Foggy Bottom off of back-to-back national championship game appearances as associate head coach at Notre Dame, was hired in April and his team's 2012-13 schedule will be announced later this summer.
