Why do I need to inform GW if I have invited any prominent speakers, attendees, or press?

GW event staff coordinates these details with a variety of offices on campus, including the Office of Media Relations and the Division of Safety and Security. In addition, the University is closed to the press, unless prior arrangements have been made. If you have invited members of the press to campus, and if our office is unaware of that, the members of the press will be asked to leave campus.
