My overall experience at Georgetown has been positive given the rigorous curriculum and high standards of academic performance have provided a stimulating learning environment. This said, I believe Georgetown could really stand to encourage more critical thinking and adopt strategies to make its student and faculty bodies more diverse, because many classrooms have tended to resemble echo chambers at times. Less significantly but still important: I think the amenities and prepared food options available on and around campus are really lacking. What is available is not affordable and the majority of these options are not catered to those who are health conscious.
Georgetown George sounds a lot of fun but it’s also a lot of work the athletic division part of it was not the most when it could’ve been in fact the football team at one and two but overall I would say door so I was a great place to be is long as you’re not trying to play football
I like that Georgetown has a lot of resources, but some of them aren't very accessible. Very rich/white school, a lot of entitled and competitive individuals. Really lacking in music/arts scene.

Academic resources are great the internal portal should be more student friendly and consolidated. The classes are very interactive and engaging and you do learn quite a bit . It is my hope that cost to attend be brought to an affordable measure as it stands right now there is constant stress as to how to pay tuition let alone books and overall coat of living. A good education should come unreasonably priced especially for those adult learners wanted to improve their lives through education.
I love it so I am having so much fun and the college is so good I am living my life with the best people woooo this is amazing thx b xoxo gossip girl
It is a beautiful campus with lively students and a supportive atmosphere. They also provide internships which will serve as a asset to many students.
Overall, an incredible experience! The location is absolutely perfect and the campus is well situated. Challenging and blows most Ivies away.
Studying at GU is a very pleasant experience. The university provides fascinating courses taught by leading professors. But the school and Georgetown community is EXTREMELY expensive, so it is hard to budget. The city of Washington DC is expensive generally, as well.
The Veterans department is wonderful. They quickly respond to emails and answer all your questions. They're a little slow on certifying hours; which can impact GI Bill funds.
Georgetown is a bit pricey but it offers world class professors and opportunities. The campus is beautiful but the dorm situation is poor. Some dorms are new and some are as old and rundown.
The academics are excellent and will prepare you for challenges in your career. As a student, take advantage of the professors' willingness to work with you to maximize your experience.
Excellent customer service! I enjoyed all of primary contacts at Georgetown through the enrollment process.
In the heart of DC politics and government, the opportunities offered by the university are endless.
I love the diversity of course offerings and the high caliber of professors. However, the food isn't the most tasty and varied little. Certain dorms are older and more broken down than others, creating inequality among dorm residents.
Everyone at Georgetown is involved and committed to many different things that they are passionate about.
Georgetown University has a beautiful campus and stellar academics that make it a wonderful place to study. The town itself is quiet yet lively enough to make for a good place to go out on weekends. The only issue I have found with the school is that the websites and technological aspects of the program can be difficult to navigate, but these should be improving in future years.
GU offers a wide range of majors and minors across its colleges. The campus is isolated in the Georgetown community on a hilltop with lovely views of the river and surrounding city, but the isolation ends at the college wall. The access to the community and DC is amazing for internships, food, shopping and exploring the various museums of the city. GU professors are engaged and helpful, committed to students. GU facilities and dorms are state of the art and make being away from home a little easier to transition to. GU students are diverse in their race, gender, nationality and backgrounds and the student discussions and activities are amazing.

Taking classes at Georgetown has exposed me to the college life millions of students experience everyday. It's been amazing interacting with students who actually go to college and hear about how it's so different from high school.
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 get it).
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.
