Speed Networking Nights

Senior Class Gift
The Senior Class Gift, a tradition at GW since the 1980s, is a way for each class to leave an imprint on the university. This year we have the unique opportunity to create a legacy as distinct and diverse as our class by giving back to the areas of the university and organizations of our choice.  You can give to any part of the university you choose - your favorite sports team, student organization, school, or scholarships and financial aid – and challenge your friends to do the same!

Online Resources

A GW-only online network designed as a resource for you and alumni seeking professional development or career advice. Before you contact anyone on the network, please read the Guidelines and Tips for Contacting Alumni Advisors.
