3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: Thurston was loud and smelled like weed all the time but other dorms like West and Potomac were really nice.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It's okay. However, if you are anything other than a political science, business, public health or international relations major, there aren't many other options. If there are other options, they are very limited.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: Some of my best memories involve GW basketball.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: The experiences I've had this year are unmatched.

4 College Junior

Health & Safety: Aside from the normal crimes associated with being in a big city, crime doesn't have a big impact on campus. Occasionally areas around the edge of campus are blocked off due to presidential things, but I've always felt safe on campus.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: I feel like my degree will adequately prepare me for working as a physical therapist upon graduation, and the professors that I've gotten close with will always be there to support me when I have questions once I'm out in the field.

3 College Junior

Campus Housing: The student housing is a little cramped on space, but it's convenient not having to walk super far to get to class or to the Metro.

3 College Junior

Greek Life: Most people I've talked to are indifferent toward Greek life. It doesn't seem to have a big on-campus presence.

3 College Junior

Athletics: Athletics aren't a big part of student life like they are at other schools I've visited or attended. The facilities are nice though!

5 College Junior

Overall Experience: Living in DC is great because there is so much to do around campus. Additionally, my classmates and professors are fully engaged and focused on becoming experts in our field while we are here.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Great experience is driven by the environment. I believe the school could care about the students a bit more.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: It is very strong, but could be better.

5 College Sophomore

Greek Life: Great, but school is trying to elminate it.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: School should do more for the students.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: My professors are very helpful and they understand my needs. The material is balanced so that it is not to easy but not too hard. The class sizes are mostly medium but sometimes large for general ed classes.

5 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: George Washington is the best school for internships. They have many guest speakers explain how to move up the corporate ladder so to speak.

5 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: The well-being for students safety is a priority at GW. We are all given safety briefs during Freshman year so we know what to do in case trouble does happen.

3 College Sophomore

Campus Housing: I would have given this a higher rating if the bathrooms were much cleaner. It is not the fault of maintenance, but the men in my dorm (it is a communal bathroom) need to learn how to flush the toilet.

3 College Sophomore

Greek Life: I really do not notice Greek life at all. There is minimal presence of Greek life that I see at GW. I may see symbols representing pride in Greek life, but I don't notice much hype surrounding Greek life.

4 College Sophomore

Athletics: I do enjoy the Basketball games at George Washington and the Lerner Health and Wellness center has a gym where I can work out. I need to lose weight and they have everything I could possibly need to achieve that goal.

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.
