Students can now say they attend the Emmy Award-winning George Washington University.
GW won its first-ever Emmy Awards on Saturday night, University spokeswoman Maralee Csellar confirmed in an email Monday. The University’s office of marking and creative services won two of the four awards they were nominated for in animation graphics and commercial campaigns from the National Capital Chesapeake Bay chapter of the National Academy of Television Arts and Sciences.
“Financing a GW Education,” a video explaining how students pay for tuition at GW won an award for animation graphics. The GW Virtual Tour, a website filled with videos featuring different areas of campus, was also nominated in the category.

The virtual tour and the University’s “#OnlyAtGW” videos, a series of short clips where students describe the unique experiences they’ve had at GW, were both nominated in the commercial campaign category. The “#OnlyAtGW” videos took home another Emmy for GW.
Leah Rosen, the associate vice president of marketing and creative services, said in an statement that “we are thrilled to be recognized for our work and honored to be able to tell the stories of our students, faculty, staff and alumni.”
