I decided to go to Georgetown University last summer to see if it would be an eligible college for me to attend. As I walked in I was extremely surprised to see how beautiful and bright the campus was. While taking the tour the students leading it seemed very smart, knowledgeable and very welcoming. The environment of the campus seemed safe and very friendly. There is so much tradition in the school that brings it to life and has a lot of memories for students. The traditions of the school show how much students love their college experience. Overall, the school gives off a very fun yet educational experience to all students and seem to be very accepting of those who go to the school. If any student was debating whether or not to come to this school I would encourage them to apply.

Georgetown's atmosphere is something that I've never felt at any other school I visited. The events and people make campus one of a kind.
