Sample Schedule / Life on Campus / Extra Opportunities:
Summer Scholars students live together as a community in residence halls on the Mount Vernon Campus. The intimate, garden campus fosters camaraderie and the learning that comes from shared experiences. The residence halls are staffed with well-trained and experienced resident advisers who are undergraduate and graduate students from GW and other universities. They provide support, guidance and supervision while assisting in a full range of extracurricular activities. Students live in suites of two double rooms with shared bathrooms. Although floors may be coed, suites are always single sex. Rooms are furnished, air conditioned, cable and phone ready and
equipped with mini-fridges and microwaves. Mount Vernon is a fully wireless campus. A community lounge, kitchen and laundry facilities are located on the ground floor of each residence hall. Entrances are secured with card key access only. Residential students have access to routine fee-for-service medical care at the GW Student Health Services on the Foggy Bottom campus.
When emergency medical assistance is required, referrals are made to area hospitals and parents or guardians are notified immediately.

GW is committed to ensuring a safe and secure campus for its students. The University’s Foggy Bottom location near the White House, the
Department of State and international bank buildings places it in one of the most protected places in the District of Columbia. The Mount
Vernon Campus provides a residential setting with quiet spaces and excellent sports facilities. Both the Foggy Bottom and Mount Vernon
campuses are patrolled around the clock. The Mount Vernon Campus is gated with 24-hour onsite security officers.
The Summer Scholars Program provides an environment that promotes intellectual inquiry and personal growth for all participants. We strive to create a community that allows each student to fulfill his or her individual goals while respecting and upholding program and University standards that ensure personal success and safety for all. Admission to the program is predicated on a student’s ability to act maturely and responsibly in an urban college setting – both academically and as part of a residential community. Any student who violates
the codes of conduct or whose behavior is considered disruptive or detrimental to the student or others will be subject to disciplinary
sanctions up to and including immediate dismissal from the program. Dismissal may become part of the student’s permanent university record.
