Student Life brings learning out of the classroom and our innovative programs are personalized to ensure you achieve academic success. From first-year students to first-generation students and transfer students, Student Life tailors services and events to reach all populations.


Fraternity & Sorority Life

FSL offers students the opportunity to create a home away from home while building lifelong friendships, developing leadership skills, and giving back to the community through service and philanthropy. With over 155 years of history, FSL is one of GW’s longest-standing traditions.


Leadership Programs

Students’ involvement in leadership development, through positional and non-positional roles, is an important part of the college experience. These roles help develop a wealth of transferable skills that are not only useful while at GW and beyond. 


Student Organizations

Assembled under an array of causes, identities, and interests, student organizations at GW put on some of the most highly anticipated campus events and offer endless opportunities for involvement and leadership each year. With over 500+ student organizations, so there is something for everyone!
