SEAS Graduation Invitation 2020


GW School of Engineering and Applied Science Graduation Announcement


Hello SEAS Student,

I hope this message finds you healthy and safe! Last week, President LeBlanc sent an email to update GW students about plans for a university-wide virtual commencement ceremony in May. While I share in his disappointment that we will be unable to celebrate all your accomplishments during an in-person ceremony, I also share his appreciation for your flexibility and adaptability during these uncertain times. 

We look forward to celebrating all that you achieved during your time at GW SEAS.  It is a testament to your dedication, your commitment to academic goals and your vision for the future. With that in mind, I invite you, your family and friends to the GW SEAS Virtual Graduation Ceremony, which will be streamed via Facebook Live on Friday, May 15, 2020 at 4 p.m. EDT.

In preparation for this celebration, please complete the following forms by 5 p.m. EDT on Monday, May 4:

Graduation Survey
Required for all graduating students, this survey is designed to help GW learn more about the experiences and future plans of our students. Your answers will help us evaluate existing programs, design new ones, and enhance advising of current and future students.
