The George Washington University has forged a strong sense of community with our Foggy Bottom neighbors, launching a variety of partnerships that underscore shared interests and needs. Through the neighborhood’s FRIENDS group, which was formed in 2002 with little more than a vague goal of establishing a positive dialogue between the university and the community, we facilitate open communication and cooperation. Today FRIENDS has grown to over 400 participants who collaborate on the annual Foggy Bottom/West End Neighborhood Block Party and other community programs and events. The FRIENDS group meets monthly at various locations throughout the neighborhood. Meetings provide community members with a great opportunity to engage with the university on any and all community matters.
