Hippodrome accepts Wall of Fame nominations
Students have the possibility to adding a favorite campus face to the Hippodrome’s Wall of Fame by submitting nominations by Friday.
Hippodrome staffers are looking for faculty, staff and students who have provided the University with “leadership and service” and have made a “significant contribution to student life at GW.” Nominees do not have to have had any formal leadership experience or received service awards.
To submit a nomination, either pick one up at the Hippodrome on the fifth floor of the Marvin Center or go to hippodrome.gwu.edu and click on “Wall of Fame.”
Those inducted will get a caricature on the Wall and be honored at a ceremony May 1. Current Wall of Fame inductees include Robert Chernak, senior vice president for student and academic support services, Josh Hiscock, co-coordinator for the Student Admissions Representative Program and several athletes, students and administrators.
