It’s Colonial Inauguration time! During this special time of the year, incoming students and their families visit GW for summer orientation—campus tours, question and answer sessions, and learning about student life.
While the parents were on campus with their budding undergraduates, I spoke with them about the breadth and depth of the arts and sciences at Columbian College. I also gave them an overview of our excellent advising system, and its recent enhancements—we just doubled the number of our professional advisors, allowing more time for personal contact between students and advisors.
Colonial Inauguration also hosted a Majors Fair where faculty from each of our departments spoke with students about courses they may wish to take within each of our departments. Students can choose from our large menu of 46 majors and 57 minors, 26 combined bachelor’s and master’s degrees, and a broad range of special academic opportunities.
To all our incoming students, welcome! We look forward to having you on campus this fall.
