Greek Life: Housing is in good shape and Greeks and non-Greeks get along well. The Greeks are an asset to the campus, but don't overshadow social life here.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: The teachers and students at this school are smart, friendly, supportive, and great to work and study with to date. The coursework is challenging and the administration bends over backwards to be helpful - and to be sure you have the funds to attend. I love GWU!

4 College Sophomore

Academics: The courses in the program are thorough and heavy on studio time. I wish there was a business/entrepreneurialship option to be better prepared to succeed in this field.

5 College Sophomore

Diversity: In my small class we had about as diverse a sampling of race ethnicity and political opinion as is possible!

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love that they offer my field of study. It is not an easy degree to obtain locally.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: Older dorms could definitely use more improvements.

4 College Junior

Greek Life: There are a variety of Greek fraternities and sororities, whether they're professional, social, or multicultural. There is Greek housing available. Social Greek life definitely overshadows other fraternities and sororities that aren't social.

4 College Junior

Athletics: The basketball team has gotten great recognition and is doing well. Sports attract a lot of outsiders.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Definitely a great experience. There are a variety of classes that engaging and there are so many facilities to utilize to help us obtain our goals.

4 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I was lucky my freshman year to live in the newest freshmen residence hall on the Foggy Bottom Campus, Potomac House. I loved living there, as everyone on my floor and in the building itself were incredibly friendly. Having a microfridge in the room was really convenient, especially for breakfast and coffee on busy mornings. The location was also pretty convenient, as I never had to walk more than 15 minutes to get to a class.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I don't participate in Greek Life so I can't say that I have strong opinions about it, but I have several friends in sororities or fraternities who claim that they absolutely love it. While students are passionate about their fraternities or sororities, I've never personally experienced or heard anyone experience pressure to join Greek Life.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: I love going to GW. The students are incredibly passionate there, not only about the specific field they have chosen to study, but about a wide variety of other things such as social, political, economic, and environmental issues. I feel like the students are very open to learning and embracing new things, and at GW there are plenty of opportunities to so.

Athletics: Students love to get involved in sports like volleyball and basketball by going to the games and cheering on the players. There is definitely more school spirit that revolves around basketball than any other sport, but that's also because they consistently perform at an exceptional level.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Students at GW tend to complain a lot about the pricey tuition, lack of school spirit, perhaps unnecessary new facilities, and excessive nickel-and-diming. However, most students stay at GW for four years—GW’s retention rate is 91 percent. Many students are also upset about how GW compares academically to other schools, and that the science labs and facilities are run-down and old. GW students want the best and sometimes the University does not live up to their expectations.

Although GW provides students with a large variety of entertaining on-campus activities, students can also go off campus and enjoy the city. The University’s location in DC makes most GW students’ experiences worthwhile and interesting. GW would not be the same, nor as wonderful, if it were not located in DC. The city adds life, variety, and uniqueness to the campus environment. Students have the opportunity to land incredible internships while taking classes. The city also offers countless off-campus shows, productions, sporting events, restaurants and bars, museums, and (of course) the monuments to visit. Washington is the perfect college town because it attracts young people from all over the country, gives students amazing opportunities, and is easy to manage. GW is a great place to be—most students are happy to spend their four years here.
