Journey Through GW

May 8 - June 1

To celebrate the Class of 2021, unique photo opportunities for graduates are being created throughout Foggy Bottom campus. These installations will be available from May 8 through June 1. If you are in D.C., we hope that you can stop by to snap a few photos of your favorite campus spots. And if you won't be in D.C. for Commencement week, don't worry! GW will be hosting a Virtual Photobooth from May 10-17 where you'll be able to get the perfect photo wherever you're celebrating. 

Share your grad photos on social media using #GWCommencement.
