3 College Sophomore

3 College Freshman

Diversity: Its a really international environment, which brings the the campus all kind of culture background.

3 College Freshman

Off-Campus Housing: School in general is grate, but parking at downtown campus is a serious issue, which becomes the only cons.

3 College Senior

Weather: Your typical DC, cold in the winter, hot and humid in the summer

3 College Senior

Off-Campus Dining: There are a number of great places in DC, but finding some that are affordable is always a challenge. They are out there though

3 College Senior

Computers: For the building's size, they offer a good number of computers. The PCs are a bit slow, but the Macs are fast, but often taken

1 College Senior

Parking: The parking at Georgetown is ok, but you must pay for a pass. The downtown campus is expensive and very difficult to get a spot.s has metered street parking whi

1 College Sophomore

Transportation: Being a commuter student, I take public transportation every day to get to school. It's very taxing and the metro system is unreliable. Driving in the city is already a hassle so make sure to give yourself enough time to get to class on time. The metro can be very expensive depending how far out you commute. The buses from downtown campus to Georgetown will never get you to class on time, I never made it to class on time when I had to go from downtown to georgetown.

3 College Senior

Transportation: driving for the Gtown campus is a must as the bus rides are inconsistent and long. I bike b/c I live nearby, but most do not.

1 College Senior

Scholarships: I was given a number of scholarships and a fellowship, however this still only accounted for a fraction of the tuition. The lack of funding may be due to my program being relatively new. A major turn-off nonetheless.

College Senior

Drug Safety: I am a grad student, therefore the focus is mainly on school. There is alcohol consumption, but this I assume is just occasional.

1 College Junior

Parking: At the downtown campus you have to park on the street and its near impossible to find a spot, plus its expensive. And the meter people love to hand out tickets! At Georgetown they at least have a parking lot, but you still have to pay a fee to use it. In the end you'd save yourself a lot of money if you didn't plan on bring a car to school.

3 College Junior

Off-Campus Housing: There are plenty apartments in the city, but you have to know where to look, and they can be costly. The city is pretty transient so if you can't find something right away chances are if you give it a month a place in an area you like will open up. The trick to finding a place in DC is starting early because most places require background/credit checks and they take time, and you never know when a place will fall through on you.

3 College Sophomore

Facilities: The facilities at the Corcoran could use updating. It's like an art student's room which makes it feel more homey in a way but it's far too small. Having more studio space for students to have their own studios would be nice. Right now students have to share their studio space with other courses which can lead to artwork or supplies being stolen. Having a bigger student lounge would be great too!

4 College Senior

Local Atmosphere: DC provides anything for anybody. The downsides are parking, bus/metro costs, and housing costs
