Adventure Bound

Adventure Bound is GW's outdoor co-curricular program. Meet fellow new incoming students, learn more about life at GW, and build lasting memories in the great outdoors. Each Adventure Bound is led by experienced student guides to help you transition to GW and college life. Adventure Bound is open to undergraduate students that are new to GW, including transfer and international students!


In light of the recent change in campus operations, Adventure Bound will not be offered for Fall 2020. If you will be on campus or in the local DC area this fall, check out the Trails trips that will continue to be offered on a limited basis throughout the semester.
