Wellbeing is more than a buzzword.

The college experience is portrayed as the "best years of your life." However, many students find that college can bring about stress, anxiety, burnout, and overwhelm. At GW, we give you access to comprehensive and holistic wellbeing resources so you can thrive during your time here.

How do GW Students Raise Up?



"One of the ways I prioritize my wellbeing at GW is through indulging in my favorite hobbies, reading and listening to music. These activities provide a sense of calm and help me maintain a balanced state of mind amidst my busy schedule. I also love exploring the diverse neighborhoods of DC. The city's cultural richness and variety of food options provide a refreshing break from my daily routine and a chance to discover new experiences."
