The Elliott School Office of Academic Advising & Student Services

is pleased to announce a special Faculty Lunch for sophomores

considering or pursuing a major in Asian Studies or an Asia concentration.

Join us for lunch with Professors Shawn McHale and Edward McCord!

Tuesday, November 16

12:00 to 1:30 pm

Sigur Center for Asian Studies

1957 E Street, Suite 503

RSVP to now!

In the subject line, please specify “Asian Studies.”

Twelve attendees will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis.

Please only RSVP if you are a sophomore and are certain that you will be able to attend.

You will hear back within 48 hours whether you have secured a spot.

At the luncheon, Professors McHale and McCord will discuss their academic backgrounds and research and will answer students’ questions about their own academic plans, as well as about opportunities both inside and outside of the classroom.

This event is part of the Elliott School’s efforts to offer special opportunities and programming to sophomores as they transition from first-year life and prepare to move on to the heart of the curriculum, declare their concentrations, and plan for internships, study abroad – and even life after GW!

The luncheon also falls under of GW’s observance of International Education Week, a joint initiative of the U.S. Departments of State and Education. International Education Week is an opportunity to celebrate the benefits of international education and exchange worldwide. Our celebration includes a variety of programs that highlight the international richness of our community and the many international opportunities available to our students. More information on GW’s observance of International Education Week is available here.
