Welcome to GW!
The return to campus can only mean one thing: it's time for Weeks of Welcome! From moving in to your residence hall through New Student Orientation and the first weeks of the semester, you'll get connected to campus resources, build friendships and find community, and learn about ways to get involved in campus life.
