5 College Junior

Academics: Georgetown offers excellent resources no matter your academic interest. The University's professors are very passionate and knowledgeable, and they love to share their exuberance with their students. Many professors have extensive careers/lives outside of the school, allowing them great insight into the real world that students will be entering once they graduate.

4 College Freshman

Academics: Work is very hard, but worth it. Getting used to all of the reading and paper may take adjustment, but isn't too hard. You'll have homework every night, but still have your weekends to relax and get ready for the week

Student Author OverviewWhat's this?

View student contributors

If there is one generalization that can be made about Georgetown students, it is that they are satisfied, and in most cases, delighted by the education they have received on the Hilltop. An instructor can make or break a college class, and although there are always a few bad apples in every basket, the vast majority of Georgetown professors is respected and admired for their commitment to undergraduate education. Students speak with special fondness of their Jesuit professors, who are praised for showing a deep interest in students’ lives beyond the classroom. The only common complaint is that the TAs and younger professors who are saddled with the task of teaching lower-level classes can be a little rough around the edges in terms of teaching style. Also, foreign TAs may have trouble with English.

A Georgetown education is like most things worth having: It’s not going to jump into your lap, even once you’ve come through the front gates. The quality of one’s academic life at Georgetown corresponds exactly to what one decides to put into it. Skip class, ignore your reading, and scoff at those professors who fail to put on pyrotechnic displays in order to keep your attention, and you’ll probably leave after four (or five or six) years with the vague sense that you’ve missed out on something that could have been great. Go to most of your classes, do most of your homework, and make an honest attempt to get to know your professors, and your life and mind will be changed forever.
