The week ahead
The most anticipated event of the school year is the #OnlyatGW debate. I know we throw around this hastag a lot, but this REALLY is an only at GW moment.

Dana Bash, CNN chief political correspondent and a proud GW alum) will moderate (**insert fangirl screams**).
March for Science
Saturday is Earth Day and although it’s important every year, THIS year it is even more so. The March for Science is taking place on the National Mall, so we can all come together and let out our collective angst at the rollback of scientific initiatives across the country. If you love science (which, like come on, you DEFINITELY do) check it out this weekend!
