GWelcome to the City

Each year, we host GWelcome to the City receptions in our metro regions as a way for recent graduates and young alumni to learn how to stay engaged as an alum and get involved in their local GW alumni network. This is a fun and informal opportunity to learn about alumni engagement opportunities, reconnect with classmates, and find out tips to navigate your new city.
