    George Washington University is a private, co-educational university primarily in the Foggy Bottom section of Northwest, Washington, DC. Its proximity to various important governmental and financial landmarks such as the White House, World Bank, International Monetary Fund, Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, and the headquarters of the United States Department of State makes it one of the top 3 schools nationwide for political involvement, international affairs, and diplomacy. Named after George Washington, he had a vision before his death and the founding of the school in 1821 of building a school in the heart of Washington, DC dedicated to providing quality education for many young students from all over the relatively young nation.

    I would rate The George Washington University a six overall. The university is strong academically, and has great professors, and curriculums. The one negative I would list for it is that DC is expensive to live in, and the city is slightly boring.
