The George Washington University’s annual Proud to Be GW festivals took place last week on the Foggy Bottom and Virginia Science and Technology campuses.

Hosted by University Human Services, the VSTC festival was held Tuesday at the Enterprise Hall Field and the Foggy Bottom festival was held Wednesday at the Marvin Center.

The employee appreciation events are held to recognize the contributions of GW staff and faculty and to express gratitude for their service to the university.

This year’s celebration bought hundreds of members of the GW community together for food and sweet treats, music and games such as Bingo, Jenga and Cornhole. There were also raffle giveaways for lunches at nearby restaurants, golfing at Top Golf and GW gear.

President Thomas LeBlanc joined GW staff at both festivals.
