Welcome Day of Service

First Year and Transfer Students

Welcome Day of Service 

GW Convocation and Welcome Day of Service!

Be a part of the GW tradition! Welcome Day of Service connects the worlds of community service and civic engagement at GW and introduces first-year and transfer students to neighborhoods and organizations here in DC and beyond!
GW hosted its 14th annual Convocation and Welcome Day of Service (WDoS) on August 27th, 2022. It was GW’s first fully in-person WDoS since 2019. We had 2,420 students volunteer to serve across 60 sites—including about 40 D.C public schools. Students recorded a total of 9,670 service hours across all participating wards in Washington, DC and Maryland! Read more about the 2022 Welcome Day of Service here.
