D.C. Mondays: 200 Years of George Washington University

Brigette Kamsler

Monday, February 22nd

12pm EST

Over the course of 200 years any educational institute is bound to have a few bumps in the road, and the George Washington University is no exception. Since the signing of Columbian College’s charter on February 9, 1821, GW has survived domestic and international wars, three campus moves, and a number of financial crises. This talk by University Archivist Brigette Kamsler will celebrate GW’s bicentennial year by exploring the endurance of the university, its students and its staff.
