Andre Gonzales

BA '20, Political Communication

"My main goal, through my time here at GW and before, was how to make an impact on my community. How can I help uplift the voices of students? How can I make sure students, particularly students of color, have a place within our institutions and feel like they belong here?"

Cody Linquist



Cody Lindquist
BA '02, Theater

Actress Cody Lindquist, BA ’02, has played twin sister murder victims on Law & Order and a mock action hero on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. She now plays First Lady Melania Trump in the Stephen Colbert-produced animated series Our Cartoon President on Showtime. 

For a news junkie who enjoyed GW’s political scene as much as its theater world, Lindquist says this may be the role of a lifetime. “You don’t hear much from Melania so she’s sort of a blank slate for me,” she said. “No one can tell me I’m doing her wrong.”
