In recent years, Twitter has clearly made a its mark with a new, shortened form of communication.  One of the frequent hashtags used by GW students, faculty, and staff is #OnlyatGW.  If you search this hashtag on Twitter you will quickly see all of the unique and exciting events and experiences of which our students are a part of.

Here are some of our #OnlyatGW moments that you could be a part of by attending the Elliott School!

  • Participate in an Inaugural Parade and waive to the President.
  • Enjoy the celebrations at the White House after a presidential election not on the news…but in person!
