What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington University is a great place to be exposed to diverse and well developed world views. Additionally, there are countless opportunities both within the university and in Washington DC, but students must be motivated enough to take the initiative to find these opportunities.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

George Washington University is a really unique place and I'm really happy I came here but it has a lot of larger flaws that can't really be compensated for being in a city. I would boil the reasons its good down to the location, social experience, and academic environment. Being in D.C. is so exciting because it attracts so many important figures that you have the opportunity to see, so many interesting events like concerts and events, and fun experiences. I got to meet French President Emmanuel Macron, see John Mulaney and go to food festivals. I loved going from a really small and white school to a diverse and big school that made me experience a lot outside my comfort zone. Also, the academic environment is really special because everyone is really social aware and knowledgeable about different things. I don't like GW for more structural reasons like it's really expensive, this is including the cost of living is super expensive like food, housing, and just the more typical GW lifestyle. It's also really hard to get help from the university or even certain professors because it is such a large school. When I would go try to get help understanding financial aid or payment issues, the staff were incompetent or just didn't have interest in helping me. For professors, I know some really helpful ones who would do a lot for their students, but in general, the classes seem to rely a lot on TA's or just doing it on your own. But besides that, I took some really interesting classes and if you make the effort you can make them feel smaller or work hard to compensate for things you find missing in your classes. A lot of GW is what you make of it, and if you are up for the challenge it can work for you.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I enjoy the fact that my program has an off-campus building for classes so the city commute is non-existent. I also love the opportunities within my program and the school that allow for campus and social engagement. The school is pricey and I am not sure if the price tag is 100% worth the academic training. However, I feel that the internship opportunities are abundant and that I am receiving a great education from truly amazing faculty members. They continue to support and encourage personal growth in all their students and teach various techniques and topics that most programs do not include or do not prioritize.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GW is an above average college. It does have its downsides, but its location in the heart of Foggy Bottom and close proximity to nearly everything you could want to go to makes it much more appealing. Although it is extremely expensive and sometimes the upper class lifestyle it promotes makes the experience more stressful and demanding than a state college might, the opportunities that are right in front of you more than make up for it.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

GW lacks diversity. Their community is diverse but racially it is not. Academics is super competitive. Students are always stressed. Campus life is pretty good. Many clubs and orgs to join and create community. Many internship and job opportunities. All in all it’s pretty amazing

What is your overall opinion of this school?

In my opinion there's not much GW can vouch for besides its location, academics, and connections. In terms of creating a safe space for all students, any issue surrounding that is usually disregarded. It has a long way to go when it comes to being a truly inclusive environment for all students.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I think GWU is unique in that it is immersed in the heart of a vibrant city with topical, educational, and social issues constantly in toe. From politics to arts, there is no better place to have your educational journey. As students we can both take advantage of opportunities on campus, of which there are many, and also those within the city at large, which are boundless.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

Students at the George Washington University (GW) complain and make fun of their university all of the time. I would know, I am an undergraduate student! It may seem like GW lacks school spirit on the outside, however, I believe our comfortability and ability to raise awareness to our own school's faults creates an inclusive environment for all students to relate to. In reality the George Washington University is a wonderful educational institution that offers a wide range of avenues to explore. Besides offering top academic opportunities (for example my comparative politics professor last semester offered extra credit for attending embassy visits), accomplished faculty, and a wide range of studies, GW offers a place for everyone. If you are thinking about joining Greek life, there is neither pressure nor deterrence. If you want to join a multicultural organization or multicultural Greek life, you have that opportunity. If you want to pursue athletic endeavors, you have that option. If you like theater, the arts, political activism, preprofessional learning opportunities, etc., GW has it all. The George Washington University is such a multifaceted university where each individual has the opportunity to create their own academic and social experience. The city and political environment definitely is not for everyone and GW is not for everyone. However, those who choose to attend GW are hungry for a challenge and ready to begin exploring the real world. The George Washington University is an intellectual environment where students question the status quo and actively seek new knowledge. Yes, GW is a university, however, I would also consider it an introduction to the real, professional world and also a home.

What is your overall opinion of this school?

I love all of my professors and the opportunities I get in Washington DC as a byproduct of going to GW (such as visiting various embassies to get extra credit) but I'm not all that challenged by the coursework or by the people around me. I was looking for a college in which I could have intellectual discussions inside and outside of the classroom and this is not the case at GW.
