| The school is very international which is a plus. I like the fact that everyone is so well traveled which makes for interesting perspectives on things. The school is very political both inside and outside in the DC area. I think is a better choice for those interested in pursuing politics rather than G-town cause it forces you to use the resorces that dc has to offer as a student. |

| Would I come here again? Absolutely. GW has such an incredible location with SO MUCH TO DO. People are really cool here and love to get out. GW is a good mix of cosmopolitan city life and a college education. |

| GW is great mainly because it offers unique experiences and jobs only DC and a university can give.|
Contrary to concern, this does not at all (in my experience) affect the so-called college experience. I had 2 jobs over fall semester, yet I made friends with a close circle (something very important to have at a larger city school) who I hang, eat, and go out with. These people I've met in my dorm rather than through classes, although a lot of people also meet friends through classes and clubs as well.
Yes, GW is an urban campus, but MUCH less so than a school like NYU. NYU is sprawled out over the city, but GW is located strictly in Foggy Bottom, a residential area in DC. The campus is very insulated and bordered by major streets which signify the borders of the campus. Thus, you KNOW whether you're on GW territory or not, it is very clear just by looking around, as GW students are always out and about within campus and GW signs are plastered over every building and street corner. The key is to make friends in the beginning- you've got to be really friendly the moment you move in. From there on, there shouldn't be any trouble in making friends- everyone loves meeting new people.
