This February, GW and Georgetown competed at AGMUNC, a mock Model UN conference hosted by Georgetown University. Over the course of 6 hours, GW students engaged in five, life-like crisis simulations and specialized bodies – practicing debate skills and exemplifying the power of GW’s Model UN team. Congratulations to all those who participated and we’re looking forward to another great experience next year!

The Student Association will be asking the student body to vote on a Student Fee Increase Referendum on November 15th. No current GW student will pay any increase in cost. Each student pays a student activities fee of $1.50 per credit hour for a maximum of 15 hours. This money goes into a pool that the SA then uses to allocate money to student organizations, such as the IAS, each year. The referendum would increase the fee by 25 cents each year over 6 years. The increase would allow the Student Association to almost double its allocations to from under $1 million to $1.75 million to student organizations and allow for better funded university-wide programming. Increased funds. Better programming. Better student life. Please visit the GW Student Fee Increase Website for more information.
