Upcoming Simulation 


April 9, 11:00 AM – 8:00 PM EST
GWU Funger Hall

Join us for our GWU's Strategic Crisis Simulation's annual United States vs. China simulation with a green team twist! This year's Rising Tides will focus on the South China Sea and the implications of contested oil rights between China and the Philippines. When a Philippine National Oil Company ship is seized by what appears to be Chinese fishermen, tensions run high in the region with potentially disastrous consequences.

Rising Tides will take place on Saturday, April 9th, 2022 from 11:00 AM to 5:00 PM EST. This simulation will be held in GWU's Funger Hall permitting the university allows us to have in-person events. If this is not possible, the simulation will be held on Discord, a free communications platform ideal for handling large numbers of people in flexible team-aligned channels. Sign up to participate at

This year's Rising Tides is co-sponsored by the US-China Strategic Studies Organization (USCSSO), a GW student-run organization dedicated to studying US-China strategic competition from an objective and nonpartisan perspective.
