The Office of Undergraduate Admissions invites you to apply to Your GW, an overnight program celebrating diversity and inclusion.
This great opportunity allows high school seniors to experience what GW, and D.C., have to offer firsthand by staying on our campus with current students. While on campus, attendees will learn about the resources available to support our students, become well versed in GW's admissions process, and engage in conversation around identity and multiculturalism with members of our community.
This year we're excited to offer a two-night program in September and a one-night program in October. Students accepted to Your GW are expected to participate in the full duration of the program and will stay overnight in a GW residence hall with a student host.
