GW students, parents, and community members are invited to a conversation with a panel of recent GW graduates to hear the advice they have to offer for life after George. The panelists will discuss their varied pathways after high school and talk with current George students about what to expect and how to navigate their futures. It’s never too early to start thinking about what’s possible, and what it takes to realize your dreams. Students and parents at every year in high school are encouraged to come and hear the real stories and specific advice from these amazing GW grads.
