GW Gears Up for Colonials Weekend

Alumni and Families Will Gather Together on Foggy Bottom Campus for Three Days of Events

On Oct. 11 the University kicks off Colonials Weekend, an alliance of Alumni Weekend and Family Weekend, with a series of events including the All-Alumni Celebration featuring fine cuisine and big band and jazz music at the Washington Marriott; and Xtreame Madness, the tip off to the men’s and women’s basketball season. On Saturday, Oct. 12 CNN’s Wolf Blitzer will give an opening address at the welcoming event in Lisner Auditorium. That same day, the Mount Vernon Campus will host an Octoberfest, and that evening “Tonight Show” host Jay Leno will be on hand for two shows at the Smith Center.

All GW alumni, family, and friends are invited to this campus celebration. For a more complete listing of the weekend’s events see page 8 or visit www.gwu.edu/alumni/cw02/.
