Add GW University on Snapchat

Snap your cap to win prizes

GW’s Commencement on the National Mall is an incredible experience to share with friends and family, and this year we’re inviting you to celebrate your big day with our entire community.

Before this year’s university-wide celebration on May 21, we want you to share your creative Commencement caps with us on social media! Share a picture of it using #GWSnapCap or send Snapchat to gwuniversity to enter our #GWSnapCap contest!

Whether you brainstorm a fun way to highlight your time at GW or devise an artistic method of saying hi to your parents from your seat on the National Mall, we want to see your imagination in action. Snap your caps to GWUniversity for a chance to win! We’re awarding GW summer-themed gifts to our Marketing and Creative Services staff's three favorite participants:

  • First place: a GW bag filled with GW-themed items from the bookstore perfect for the summer
  • Second place: a GW T-shirt and hat
  • Third place: GW sunglasses

GW's social media team will be patrolling the ceremony grounds, Snapchatting your originality. Keep an eye out for the chance to appear in our Commencement Snapchat story. Your Commencement cap creativity could be on display for the entire university!
