Virtual Engagement

Now more than ever, maintaining our connection to each other is so important. Social distancing asks us to be physically apart, but there are still many ways to stay engaged with the GW community.

The Office of Student Life is here to share opportunities for engagement at a distance by curating thoughtful ways to connect with each other throughout the summer.

Take a look at what's happening and let us know if you have an activity or idea to be featured. We look forward to connecting with you from wherever you are in the world as we #RaiseHigh from afar!

Campus Living and Residential Education

Our number one priority is ensuring the safety of our community and we stand ready to support our students through this difficult time.

With government stay-at-home instructions issued to limit the spread of COVID-19, we do not believe it will be safe for students and their families to return to campus in the coming weeks to move out of the residence halls on their own accord.

Our focus is on packing and storing student belongings through the start of the Fall 2020 semester at no cost. We are exploring options for the shipping of some items or the retrieval of stored belongings if this becomes a safe option.

How do you Raise UP?


Raise Up GW is our initiative dedicated to helping students engage in a comprehensive well-being experience. We empower our students to actively engage in well-being activities that are supportive of holistic lifestyles, no matter where they are.

Through this initiative, students will gain an understanding of GW resources and will learn how to help others in need.

CARE Network

At GW, we aim to create a community that cares for one another. From the moment students arrive on campus, they begin to find their place at the university. The college experience can often be challenging, and asking for help can be difficult. The CARE Network reaches out to offer support so that students can be as successful as possible through graduation.
