Thousands of members of the George Washington University's Class of 2024, their families and friends filled the Washington Monument grounds Sunday for GW's Commencement. Highlighted by Commencement speaker Jen Psaki, the MSNBC host and former White House press secretary, the celebration continued a tradition in which GW is the only university in the world to have its Commencement ceremony held on the National Mall. GW Today photographers William Atkins, Joy Asico, Lily Speredelozzi and Rick Reinhard captured these images of the celebratory event.
