Overall Experience: Love it. Being in the heart of DC is incredible, you get to meet so many people and have so many opportunities to try new things. We have an incredibly diverse student body and you'll always find your inner 'family' at GW. 450+ student orgs

Overall Experience: Professors at GW are so cool. Most of them have experiences that you could never imagine and it's amazing how they bring that into the classroom. My economics professor (Prof. Foster) knows most of her students (she teaches 600+ freshman) on a first name basis and is incredibly helpful.

Health & Safety: GW's Health Center moved to campus on the Spring of 2015. The University Counseling Center still has to make some improvements but they're getting there. Spots fill out quickly, they accept walk-ins but you might have to wait 30+ minutes in a bad day.

Doctors are very caring and look out for you.

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: I love it, they are great at everything, I love that the library is 24/7 and I love that they have a room specifically for grad students because you can concentrate more. I love watching the rowing team across the Potomac river, The Corcoran is an amazing school right in the middle of all the museums and where I will start my internship at the Smithsonian libraries which is my favorite place in the World which is the National Mall.

I wouldn't choose the school again if I knew that professors will be so mean and that they do not not communicate clearly.

Overall I will definetely apply again to the Corcoran or GW.

Athletics: I love their team spirit and the cool shop online where you can get all the goodies that say GW. I love the rowing team, and it shows the effort this people make by being athletes and at the same time having the academic load and cope with classes to get a degree.

Off-Campus Housing: The pros is that you can interview and meet people by Facetime so you get an idea of who are you going to live with and they have a really nice website to put you with your needs. When you do off-campus it might not be safe and the values and morals of people in the long term can create conflict with the ones you have. The cost is affordable is you have scholarships loans and for graduate students that you have enough credit to have the opportunity to get the Federal Grad Plus loan. The landlords are Ok they do anything to help you because that is their business to get money out of their house/property. For safety you can always dial 911 or call the police, that a neighbor helps you but really you are on your own.

Party Scene: At the Corcoran parties on campus they give out the best!

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.
