A Celebration's Culmination
Explore the highlights from the year of celebration.

2012 marked 100 years since the George Washington University relocated to the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. These decades have seen marked geographical, economic and social change for the school and neighborhood. Between February and October, 2012, The George Washington University planned a wide range of events, discussions, and get-togethers to celebrate our mutual growth and success.

The Foggy Bottom neighborhood is located in the Northwest quadrant of Washington, D.C., and is bounded roughly by 17th Street to the east, Rock Creek Parkway to the west, Constitution Avenue to the south, and Pennsylvania Avenue to the north. Since 1912, Foggy Bottom has been the site of the university's main campus which has grown to encompass 42 acres of the area.
