Kaplan on Choosing GW: “Deciding to go to GW was an easy choice for me because of the balance between the prestigious academics and the thriving gymnastics program. During the time I spent with the coaches and the team on my visit, everyone made GW feel like home right away. Also, my family has been creating a legacy at the University since my dad first graduated from GW in 1988, later on followed by my uncle and older brother. Getting to compete gymnastics for my family's alma mater and continuing our tradition is a dream come true."
