The George Washington University Class of 2022 graduates were recognized Sunday, May 15 at Commencement on the National Mall. GW Today chatted with some of the new graduates as they gathered before their procession to their seats, asking the graduates to share what or who they will remember most about their time at GW.
College of Professional Studies graduate, Angela Trujillo, MPS ’22 (Political Management), was one of the members of the Class of 2022 GW Today talked to at Commencement.
Ms. Trujillo, whose future plans include working in advocacy for human rights, specifically on immigration, shared the following thoughts about her time at GW:
“The majority of my professors were very inspiring and helpful throughout my time here. I’ll remember them and also the fact that we did everything hands on, working in real time, responding to real events that were happening at the same time I was in school. For instance, in my class on audience research, we were able to do a study when the Russian invasion of Ukraine had just exploded, so we were able to use that as a reference for our final project with doing all the research and the studies and polls. We were able to compare our conclusions with what the national polls were saying in real time, and we were right on the money.”
