Greek Life: There are sororities and fraternities but they are not at all a big part of campus.

Georgetown University, similar to the government down the street, is a school for the students, by the students, and of the students. No other school so uniquely caters to undergraduates who are driven to take control of their education and college experience. It is for this reason that the students it attracts have purpose and drive to get the most out of their experience. The education is incredibly focused on the undergraduate experience, and the professors, fresh off of their jobs at Capitol Hill, make a special effort to be available to any students who want to pursue an education outside of the classroom. Since Georgetown is arguably the most international school in the country, practically every other student you meet has lived abroad, studied abroad, or taken a fascination with a certain region abroad, which creates a level of international diversity that's hard to emulate elsewhere. The resources all around students (from the determined peers to extremely experienced professors to the city of D.C. itself) are ripe for the taking, and that is exactly what the students do. Everywhere you look, students are driven with ambition. Students have direct control in many organizations, including an entirely student-run business with a gross revenue of $4 million, the largest student credit union with assets exceeding $17 million, and orientation and peer ambassador programs that help students adjust to life on the hilltop.

However, this fast-paced life is not for everyone. It can be exhausting having to compete with the Georgetown students around you who have an internship, job, and/or high-ranking position in some club or another. The acceptance rates for all of the individual programs are often more competitive than the very low rate to get into the school itself. In addition, the school does not offer a Greek system or tailgate experience to ease the competitive edge. Most of the social life is, like the school, motivated by students who go out into the bars and nightlife of D.C. and create their experiences. At times, even the gothic architecture and scenic riverside location cannot ease the stress. Essentially, Georgetown offers incredible resources to those who want to take advantage of them, and many of the ambitious students come to the school to do exactly that. It can be the best place in the world if the fit is right, but make sure that it is; otherwise, be prepared to get swept up in a whirlwind of activity if that's the case.
