Connect with GW Students

The support of GW's global network of alumni enhances the student experience from their first day at Colonial Inauguration through graduation on the National Mall.

How can alumni assist GW students?

Through service and leadership, alumni strengthen the student experience and instill pride in being a Colonial.

The GW Alumni Association offers and supports programs to help welcome students to campus, foster mentor relationships, and to provide experiential-learning opportunities preparing students for their careers.
