Raise High, Revolutionaries!

After a thoughtful and deliberative process, we are thrilled to announce that Revolutionaries will be the new moniker for the George Washington University.

GW received approximately 47,000 points of feedback throughout its community engagement efforts, and Revolutionaries consistently ranked as the top choice throughout the moniker development process.



While much has changed over GW’s 200 years,
what endures is our never-ending

commitment to creating a
greater world.






GW Grad Helps Others Through Entrepreneurship


Headshot of Anas Mheir Alsaadi



Recent GW graduate Anas Mheir Alsaadi had never even heard the word “entrepreneurship” until 2020 when he assisted a friend in launching a startup, but it quickly became a passion for him once he realized it could be a means to helping others.

“I really like the idea of entrepreneurship because it’s one of the ways that you can actually change the world and improve the world, because it’s about problem solving,” Alsaadi said. “So, you find the problem, and then use entrepreneurship to find the solution and make a solution out of nothing.”

He founded the GW Entrepreneurship Club as a place for all innovators to create, learn and network, and now that he’s graduated, he plans on teaching the entrepreneurship skills he’s learned at GW to people back home in Dubai.

Graduating Students Share Their Favorite Memories at GW

Forging lifelong friendships, saluting faculty, demonstrating at the Supreme Court, building a particle accelerator, traveling to Lisbon, merging theater and politics, sleeping in protest on the Capitol steps. The Class of 2023 has experienced it all.






“It was an inspiring experience to not only meet Bill Clinton, but to work alongside him to give back to the community around us. I am very grateful to GW for selecting me and my teammates to be part of this incredible opportunity.“
