Make an Impact

In January 2019, seven GW alumni were inaugurated into the 116th Congress— but it doesn’t stop at Capitol Hill. Our students go on to be journalists, researchers, teachers, designers, engineers and more. They aim to change the world in a wide variety of fields with diverse skills sets they honed in the classrooms of the George Washington University. How can GW prepare you to make an impact?
