Georgetown students love their environment. During the day, Washington offers internships and employment opportunities that are literally not available any place else on earth. As long as you're interested in government, journalism, or law, there will always be a place for you to get your feet wet. At night, D.C. is just as happy to cater to the needs of college students, with several neighborhoods around the town—including the one in which the University is situated—economically dependent on undergraduates' need to cram themselves into bars and holler praise at the serendipity of life until the wee hours of the morning. Washington's main weakness is that you’ve got to pay to play, and like any major metropolis, everything from toilet paper to lobster costs more than it probably should.
It’s often said that the neighborhood of Georgetown seems to have been designed with college students in mind, and that might be true, depending on one’s definition of "college student." If a college student is someone who 1) has direct access to the bank account of a parent at the helm of a Fortune 500 company, or 2) is comfortable living in an elitist area where adult residents are openly hostile toward students and do everything they can to make life miserable for the University—then, golly, Georgetown surely was designed for college students. To be fair, Georgetown students have certainly done their part to drive up prices and irritate the neighbors, but it should be noted that if a "college student" is someone who will grudgingly walk the five blocks through a community of pale, snooty people who don’t smile, just to get to the cheap ($12 a plate) hamburger joint, then perhaps said "college student" should think about going to GW.
