Alumni Weekend 2008
September 25-28

Attention members of the classes of 2003, 1998, 1988, 1983, 1960-69, and 1958 and earlier! Please mark your calendars for your class reunions to take place during Alumni Weekend, September 25–28, 2008. As always, all alumni and friends are welcome!

Some great events have been added to the schedule:

  • Screening of critically acclaimed film, "The Matador," on Saturday afternoon, followed by a Q&A with Nina Seavey, producer/co-director of the film and founder/director of The Documentary Center at GW. The film is an epic tale of David Fandila's three-year quest to become the world's top-ranked bullfighter. His story recounts the love of a son for his family, of audiences for their heroes, of people for their cultural traditions, and of a bullfighter for the majestic beast he must kill to create his art.

  • An election-themed brunch, featuring GW alumnus Chuck Todd, NBC News' political director, and NBC News' on-air political analyst for "NBC Nightly News with Brian Williams," "Today," "Meet the Press with Tim Russert" and MSNBC, including "Hardball with Chris Matthews."

  • Other events: The Distinguished Alumni Achievement Awards, the Alumni Weekend Kickoff Party, tours of campus and DC, Classes without Quizzes, "Back to Thurston" tours, an open house at President Knapp's new residence, a wine tasting, a special performance at Lisner Auditorium, The Kalb Report, Politics and Pita, an Orioles game, reunion class celebrations, and more! Additionally, each school, including Mount Vernon Seminary and College, will plan special events for their alumni.

We need your help to plan events and recruit classmates to attend. If you would like to nominate yourself or a classmate to serve on a Reunion Committee, please contact Andrew Kaufteil, director of reunions, or Stephanie Medwid, associate director of classes and reunions, at or 1-800-ALUMNI-7. Don't miss this monumental opportunity to reconnect with classmates, GW, and D.C.! Come back to GW and celebrate good times!
