GW is an amazing school to be at! Everyone at GW is generally knowledgable about politics and international affairs, so you are exposed to a wide variety of political ideologies. It's an incredibly diverse political environment. This environment then attracts political speakers and other opportunities! As a freshman, you can get internships in some of DC's most prestigious workplaces because we are one of the few schools in inner DC! If you aren't interested in politics, all of our social science programs are equally amazing and our business and engineering program is extremely underrated!

Choosing housing is complicated! You have to consider your own wants and needs in regard to Cost, Location/convenience, social atmosphere, and year in college. For example, the #1 Freshman dorm is crazy but it's exactly what the average kid expects. It's close quarters, loud, and tons of fun. If your goal is to nerd out, probably not the best place. But....If you can handle your work and your party! GO FOR IT! Second year is a little more tame. Everyone knows how important grades are now so they want to have quiet during the week but depending on the dorm you choose the weekends can get wild. Junior and Senior year are a lot more relaxed. Upperclassmen tend to take their parties to the surrounding bars, pubs, and clubs. So dorms are nicer, larger, and quieter but also, usually more expensive.

I love it here and am having a great experience! The main issue with the school is the housing situation and not necessarily knowing where you're going to be placed on campus, but I am having a great time here. It's just like any other school, students have grievances with the administration, but because we are the most politically active campus(as we live in DC) they are just more vocal about them. You have to put in the work for grades and ultimately your experience at GW depends completely on how much effort you put into it. It's a great school and I'm glad I'm here, but ultimately your experience here is what you make of it.
