Inside GW: Undergraduate Admitted Student Days

For admitted first-year students, we have a series of Inside GW Days so that you can experience what it’s like to be a student at the Corcoran at GW. There will be a mix of in-person and virtual opportunities. As an admitted student, you will receive information directly from the Office of Admissions about  Inside GW: Admitted Student Days and how to register for events.

We offer several Inside GW dates with special Corcoran programming so that you can learn more about your school, meet current students and faculty, and get to know your future classmates. We also have some exciting virtual opportunities, including an online information session on our Arts & Design Living Learning Community (LLC)!

NEXT Celebration & Inside GW Admitted Student Day Thursday, April 28 and Friday, April 29

We hope you join us for this two-day Admitted Student Event that incorporates special opportunities for admitted students as part of the NEXT Opening and Reception Thursday evening.  The NEXT celebration is an end-of-year show of our graduating students and their work is a perfect way to experience what to expect as a student at the Corcoran. You will have a chance to see work from across the school - from interior architecture to dance and theatre to studio arts and design.

This year’s theme, “Fresh Start,” emphasizes the collective sense of loss and emotion that we have felt—especially by students—including the time lost from the pandemic, the fumbling efforts to keep moving forward, and looking ahead to whatever is next, as we celebrate those who are graduating this year.

On Friday, you’ll participate in the Inside GW Programming and have additional opportunities to connect with your Corcoran program.
