Raise Up GW

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 [email protected].


Dimensions of Well-being

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. We are dedicated to helping you prioritize your well-being. Browse through the eight dimensions of well-being to find campus services and other resources to aid you in finding a healthy balance.

How Do You Raise Up?

Everyone engages their well-being differently, and we want to hear from you! Follow Student Life on Instagram and stay tuned during the first week of each month to tell us how you maintain your well-being as a GW student. You could win a GW merch prize pack!

"Back home, my mom and I would garden a lot [and walk] on the beach while picking up and properly disposing of trash. [I also like] visiting the Dupont Farmers Market  [and] having different plants around my room to brighten my day - my favorite right now being Terry the Terrarium (yes, I named my terrarium)."
