DMA Technology Summer Camps atGeorge Washington University June 29th – July 24th


For students who want a pre-collegiate experience at a college they’re interested in attending or who just want to get away for the summer and explore a new city, Digital Media Academy offers the best of both worlds. Learn on George Washington University’s Mount Vernon campus, eat in the same dining hall as its undergrads and students ages 12+ can even stay overnight. Digital Media Academy selected GW not only because of its impeccable reputation as a liberal arts college, but also because of its superior campus location within the nation’s capital.

Students can hang out in Pelham Commons or enjoy the rest of brand new West Hall, which includes a digital media center, high-tech studio, 150-seat black box theater and even a fitness center. In addition, students can take advantage of the Vern Express, which provides continuous transportation to and from GW’s Foggy Bottom campus. Here they can also visit the nearby Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, explore the National Geographic Society or tour the massive Library of Congress.

Campus Facts

Founded: 1821, and originally called “The Columbian College in the District of Columbia.”

Campus Size: The 70-acre GW campus consists of two sites located within five miles of each other. DMA’s program is held on the 23-acre Mount Vernon campus, which is situated in the Foxhall neighborhood of northwest Washington.

Local Attractions: Because Washington is home to the U.S. government, as well as an incredible array of historical monuments and buildings, there’s much to see. Families can take in the majestic Washington Monument and tour the Lincoln Memorial and the Jefferson Monument, as well as several veteran memorials. The National Mall features a wide variety of museums (including the Smithsonian Institution Building and the National Air and Space Museum), numerous art galleries and many breathtaking gardens. See the White House, the U.S. Capitol and other key governmental buildings.

Famous Alumni: As you might expect, GW alumni have factored prominently in politics and government affairs. Both Sen. Harry Reid (Senate Majority Leader) and Rep. Eric Cantor (House Majority Leader) graduated GW, as have 18 state governors and many members of Congress, as well as former Secretary of State Colin Powell and first director of the FBI, J. Edgar Hoover. Other graduates have included First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Boston Celtics owner Red Auerbach. NBC News political director Chuck Todd got his start at GW, as did actor Alec Baldwin (30 Rock). GW’s distinguished faculty included physicist Edward Teller, father of the hydrogen bomb.

George Washington University serves a total enrollment of 25,000 students, which are attracted to GW by its academic excellence and amazing location within the U.S. capital. The university is organized into ten schools and colleges, each of which has a different dean and organization. Its leading undergrad programs include its school of international affairs, the college of arts and sciences, and its school of business. Graduate programs include the GWU Medical School and Law School, as well as the GWU Graduate School of Political Management.
