George Washington University Reviews
Review George Washington University
I am an alum as of one week ago, and I cannot thank GW enough! My 4 years here have been amazing in every way. From my work/study position at one of the Smithsonians to my professors in the SMPA to an internship that led to a permanent (and fantastic) job offer, GW allowed me to make my dreams come true. With minor exceptions, my professors were top-notch and challenged me to rise to their high expectations. I never felt threatened or unsafe on campus, despite taking some classes at night. I lived in dorms my first two years then found off-campus apartment housing in Arlington (easy Metro ride) for the last two. I love living in this great city. You will thrive on this campus if you have a high degree of personal responsibility, you are intellectually curious, you own your life and don't blame others when things don't go your way and you are eager and ready to be an adult. And graduating on the National Mall is outstanding!
I love George Washington University! I have found a strong sense of belonging here by joining the Student Admissions Representatives team, where there are people who are just like me!The professors are awesome too! They are not intimidating at all. Despite their prestiges in their own academic fields, they could be really easy-going and approachable who really try their best to assist their students to succeed.
GW is an amazing school to be at! Everyone at GW is generally knowledgable about politics and international affairs, so you are exposed to a wide variety of political ideologies. It's an incredibly diverse political environment. This environment then attracts political speakers and other opportunities! As a freshman, you can get internships in some of DC's most prestigious workplaces because we are one of the few schools in inner DC! If you aren't interested in politics, all of our social science programs are equally amazing and our business and engineering program is extremely underrated!
