Raise Up GW

To be well at the George Washington University is to honor the dynamic process of change and growth that involves building resilience, persistence, and positivity in the face of challenges. Raise Up GW is our initiative dedicated to helping students engage in a comprehensive well-being experience across campus. We empower our students to actively engage in well-being activities that are supportive of holistic lifestyles. Through this initiative, students will gain an understanding of resources and learn how to help others in need. For more information, contact the Raise Up GW Committee.

"During the past few months spent back at my childhood home, I have reconnected with my friends from high school. Many of us have changed a lot just in a few years. I love learning about the new hobbies and interests that my friends have found through their own experiences. I've even become closer to some friends who I used to consider more like 'friends of a friend' through our newfound common interests."
