George's Army Brings the Noise to the Smith Center


Students excitedly cheering as George's Army in the Smith Center



The GW Men’s Basketball team is off to its best start since the 2015-16 season. Following the highly anticipated Miracle on 22nd Street pregame tailgate for a game against a Power Five opponent, energy carried over inside the Smith Center as a packed George's Army student section spilled over its allotted 1,000 seats into a second side of the arena. 

"The fans are like a sixth player on the floor for us," said senior guard James Bishop, who scored 24 points, dished out eight assists and grabbed three rebounds that night. "They were there from the jump, and we love that support."

For Geography Students, D.C. is their Classroom

Professor David Rain’s Geography Pro Seminar is a senior capstone course that combines seminar-style discussion with real-world exposure to geography challenges. Splitting into five teams, students spread out across the D.C.-area to collect data, conduct surveys and advise city agencies and stakeholders on best practice solutions as they investigate the rising demands on D.C. curbsides.

"Thomas Buergenthal visited my Holocaust class @GWtweets today and I’ll never forget it. It was the first time in my life hearing from a Holocaust survivor directly. Research through text is one thing. Hearing directly from the person is another."
