It was the summer of “Turn Down for What,” the men’s World Cup in Brazil and the birth of the “Black Lives Matter” movement when the class of 2018 arrived at the George Washington University. On May 20, they’ll gather on the National Mall as graduates.

As seniors prepare for the next phase of their lives, we’re taking a look back at some of George Washington Today’s top stories and memorable cultural moments from their years as GW students.
