George-Thomas Svanikier

Class of 2017
Major/Minor: Economics / Political Science

I am a senior at Washington College. I am originally from Ghana but also went to school in the UK. I am very passionate about politics, financial technology and football (soccer).

Campus Involvement

I have served as Vice-President of the Economics honor society, Omicron Delta Epsilon. 

I love soccer with a passion. I play on the club soccer team and acted as treasurer for two semesters.

I was an RA for three semesters before going to the Washington Center for a semester long internship.

I interned with Citi’s Global Government Affairs office in DC. Being in the political center of the country during this rollercoaster of an election year is an experience I will never forget. I highly recommend the Washington Center program to anyone who is looking to increase their professional experience while still earning a semesters worth of academic credits.

I took part in the Washington College to Wall Street program. This is a great program to get involved with if you are interested in a career in the financial sector or if you are just looking to improve your understanding of it. 

I love drama and acting. I most recently played Banquo in a senior directing thesis of Macbeth.
