Legacy Families

GW Legacy Community

As a part of a GW legacy family, we value your and your family's continued participation in the life of this University. Your multi-generational family connections are one of our core strengths, and we are delighted that you are part of a great tradition of legacy families at GW.

Who are legacy families?
The University recognizes legacy families as students and alumni whose family, including parents, grandparents and/or siblings, attended or currently attend GW.

We want to get to know you!
Tell us your story — we want to hear about you and your family's experiences at GW. Email us at alumni@gwu.edu and tell us your story, and please include some current family photos.

GW Legacy Programs
Legacy students and families will be able to take part in unique programs throughout the year, including:

  • Legacy Family Welcome Brunch — A brunch reception held on the Sunday of Move-In weekend, for all legacy students and their families, to welcome the legacy students of the incoming class.
  • Legacy Family Commencement Reception — A reception and champagne toast to celebrate and honor this year's legacy graduates and their families during Commencement Weekend.

We are proud of GW's legacies and invite you and your family to join us at these events to celebrate your special bond to our University.
