Several of our 2021 graduates reminisce on their time at the University by sharing some of their fondest memories.
Bobby Baker, College of Professional Studies, Homeland Security
"The most significant memory of George Washington University that I will take away in obtaining my Master's degree in Homeland Security is how professional and focused everyone remained at this prestigious university by synergistically joining together across all academic modalities to continue operations through the SARS CoV-2 pandemic. GW students and faculty showed that through unification and collaboration, it could continue to meet its mission as a change agent to the world despite the peripheral effects of COVID-19!"
Taylor Bologna, Graduate School of Political Management, Strategic Public Relations program
"At the end of my first semester, I sat in on the Strategic Public Relations capstone presentations. It was a huge ‘aha’ moment for me to hear my peers speak on their chosen topics and to see them apply everything they learned in the program all in one place. Their diverse experiences and passions served as inspiration to explore the various ways I could apply my degree to my career after graduation."
Laura Kehoe, College of Professional Studies, Paralegal Studies program
"My wonderful professors and the great classmates who I now call friends and colleagues are what I’ll most remember! However, being a remote student from Texas, my fondest GW memory is my one campus visit for orientation. Christopher Beatty kindly showed me around campus, including the law school and bookstore. The grand finale was personally meeting faculty, including Professor Toni Marsh, and students. Attending in person was not required, but I did not want my first time on campus to be graduation!"
