Review Georgetown University
As a transfer and low income student, I would consider my GU experience to be a difficult transition. The people here are very smart and driven, yet possess a degree of ignorance towards those unlike themselves. With the bubble of affluence here, the social scene is challenging. However, the area is gorgeous, my professors initiate engaging discussions, notable speakers/guests visit the campus (Hillary Clinton, John Kerry, USA Olympians, Airbnb Execs), the drive is contagious and everyone is doing EVERYTHING ("hillternships," volunteer work, case competitions, five clubs, knows three languages, started a school in Africa, plays the violin...you get it).
On the varsity level, Georgetown sports teams are successful. Spanning a wide range of sports, from soccer to sailing, Hoyas are competitive on the national level. In terms of the two big college sports, football and basketball, Georgetown has a weak football team, but a perennially strong basketball team. Sure, we haven't been to the final four since 2007, but making March Madness is usually a sure bet. More importantly, people really care about the team, and that's what makes the games fun! Facilities are pretty good too. There is a new varsity athletic facility under construction, which will be good for varsity teams and will hopefully take some traffic away from Yates, the main campus gym.
I like the opportunities that are available at Georgetown University. In fact, employers often times recruit directly on campus. The professors are intelligent, engaging, and passionate, they really want to see you succeed. Georgetown's dining halls and dorms could be improved and they are actually starting work on those two items over the summer. Another thing that I wish was different about Georgetown is that there are very few traditions, most of student life is focusing on academics, sometimes a little to much.
