Save the Dates – Virtual Admitted Student Days for First-Year Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to the Corcoran School of the Arts and Design at GW! We hope you will join us for admitted student virutal programming.

We have a variety of Corcoran events planned so that you can connect with us to learn more about your program, to meet faculty, and to get to know your future classmates.
