WELCOME CLASS OF 2028!

GET READY FOR THE MOST MEMORABLE YEARS OF YOUR LIFE.
College is a time for academic, social, and self-development. At GW Hillel, we aim to give you the tools and support you need to make the most out of your time at GW and grow as an individual.

LAUNCHPAD 2024

Looking for a way to ease the transition into college? Want to be connected with other incoming Jewish first year students? GW Hillel’s LaunchPad offers incoming first year students a unique opportunity to 'find your people' and arrive to campus welcomed with open arms by Hillel student leaders and staff.

What can I expect by participating in LaunchPad? 
LaunchPad helps students feel a sense of belonging from the very start of their first year on-campus. GW Hillel works to create an experience that cultivates relationships and helps students see the city with Jewish values in mind. 

Each year, we curate a unique experience but past LaunchPad groups did some of the following:
- Met with US Congress Representatives & Senators, Supreme Court Justices, and staffers to hear about the intersection of Jewish Life and Politics
- Took a Private Tour of Nationals Stadium
- Met with Small Groups for icebreakers and other social gatherings
- Q&A Sessions with upperclassmen about EVERYTHING you need to know to take advantage of your time at GW.
- Challah Baking Class with the Founders of RxChicken: an up-and-coming DC based company.
- Met with Founder of SHOUK: an incredibly delicious vegan Israeli restaurant in DC
- and more! 

Dates, registration costs, and more informationo about LaunchPad will be announced in mid-April!
