The best of GW memes: Year one

Looking back on some of our favorites

Emily Milakovic


GW memes for The 10th most politically active teens (formerly the most political) launched roughly a year ago, as a place for "fresh hot memes for u hillterns out there." As page founder Jake Kania told us last April, GW students are characters, perfect for the making of memes.

From roasting the Corcoran, now-former Provost Peter K, or the poor Mount Vernon campus, we've had plenty of relatable memes this past year, some of which are highlighted here. In the interest of transparency, I have chosen:
a) the most liked posts
b) memes that are specific to life at GW, not college in general and
c) no more than three posts per category.

Some were not included if they were repetitive (three of the twenty most-liked memes were about the lovely Gelman closing speech) or if they were videos without any subtitles I could include in a screenshot or small text that became too pixelated in a screenshot, so please do not be offended if your meme isn't here; trust me, I saw and appreciated it.

Links to the memes are provided below the photos, in case you feel inspired to give them a like. Without further ado, here are the best memes of the past year.
