The classmates I have here are very friendly, and they are always there to help you when you need it. When i first started to attend this University, I was very suprised on how nice they all are. These people are the ones that will smile and wave at you even if they have no clue who you are. They always try to make sure you are involved and having fun.

Tyler

My classmates are very caring, friendly, devoted to their work, and living for Jesus Christ.

Jordan

Is eclectic. The biggest myth about GWU is that the student body is a homogenous mass of like-minded robots. The student body is comprised of free thinking individuals that have differing viewpoints on politics, religion, sports, etc. The two biggest divides among the student body are those between athletes and non-athletes and those between fundamentalist Christians and "less religious" students.

Jesse

Christian university and that greatly increase the percentage of the student population with strong religious beliefs and a christian centered student experience. The student body often can seem divided between athletes and the religiously inclined, which can result in tension. I found the divide was greater in perception than reality and while I was not an athlete a large percentage of the students I spent most of my time with and am still in contact with are.

Jeff

The student body of GWU is a microcosm of American society. GWU is a multi-national university. However, at GWU, students are not black, white, asian, etc. -- you are all GWU students. I never experienced any racial or social boundaries or issues. And, I did not come from an affluent, or wealthy, family either.

Jesse

It is a diverse campus where the main focus is on learning and giving back to others. It is a Baptist University where the focus has been on faith and serving others.

Jordan

This is a religious institution, thus only certain types of students seek these type universities. No racial tension has occured that I know of. Typical college attire is worn, but in earlier years, if you were a business major, you had to dress and act the role of a business owner. The four tables in the dining hall are diverse. A good mixture of all. The majority of the students are from NC.

Travis

The student body is mainly christians who like the size of GWU and what it stands for.
