Volunteer at Colonial Inauguration

Make it a Casual, Buff and Blue Summer
Buff and Blue Fridays have been extended to include all days during the summer, from Monday, May 22nd through Friday, August 25th! DSA staff members are invited to wear casual attire, including appropriate jeans (no holes, rips, or tears), and are encouraged to wear buff and blue GW attire whenever they want to show their Colonial spirit.
At all times, please continue to use your discretion in making appropriate clothing decisions based on your experience, needs, and professional context, including during Colonial Inauguration. If you have any questions about these guidelines, including what is appropriate casual attire, please talk with your manager.
Save the Dates: Welcome Week 2017 - August 26th - September 3rd
GW students have moved out for the summer, so now we need to start thinking about what happens when they all return to campus in August. Welcome Week 2017 will be Saturday, August 26th through Sunday, September 3rd.
Welcome Week is a key program designed to provide students with engagement, support, and resources to ensure a positive and enjoyable transition to GW - whether for the first, third, or sixth time. The Center for Student Engagement is looking forward to planning several CSE events during Welcome Week as well as centrally coordinating and promoting the programs available for students.
We are asking all departments and organizations to please communicate your Welcome Week program details through Google Sheets.
You will see complete guidelines and instructions within the first tab. Please read all instructions before adding your program to the document. For an example, view the August 26th tab to see the First Night event information.
The deadline to communicate your information for Welcome Week publicity is Wednesday, July 19th. Feel free to see what other departments are planning to look for possible collaborations or potential conflicts.
