Student Involvement

Students can support GW in many ways, from volunteer opportunities to sustainability initiatives to public service. Special initiatives such as the Senior Class Gift and Colonial Connection allow students to take an active role in fundraising for the university.

Senior Class Gift

A tradition at GW since the 1980s, the Senior Class Gift Campaign is a way for each class to leave an imprint on the university.
