When his firm sent him abroad two years ago to launch the business overseas, Aaron Bates, ESIA BA ’98, needed a way to meet people in his new home. He sought out the GW Alumni Association in London to get him started.
“On moving to London, I was looking for ways to network and meet people,” said Bates, who now leads the Alumni Association’s London chapter. “One of my first stops was the GW Alumni Association. Considering the international nature of the student body at GW, I thought we were bound to have graduates living and working in London.”
He was right. Not only does GW have many graduates living in London, the university has alumni in more than 145 countries across the globe, totaling more than 7,500 alumni living abroad.
