    I love being here; the location is great! There is never a dull moment on the campus, and even if you feel like there is there are so many attractions nearby that can entertain you. There are monuments, memorials, and even the White House are are in walking distance, plus if shopping is your thing then there is M Street which is filled with superb stores and restaurants. Plus it helps that DC is a university center, so Howard, George Washington, and American are nearby too.

    I spent a few weeks on campus this past summer and also went to the GAAP (admitted students) weekend and the campus is very lively and the students are surprisingly very friendly. The city is incredible. I'm sure it'll be hard to not go crazy with all the activities next year.

    I really love Georgetown. Honestly, I applied to Georgetown as a safety school and wound up matriculating. For a private college campus, Georgetown is Extremely diverse. It's so awesome to walk through Red Square (or anywhere else on campus, for that matter) and to learn other languages being spoken; to walk down M Street and be able to sample Middle Eastern, Indian, American & Latin American food; to have the option of going to a Jon Stewart Rally or meeting President Barack Obama; and then, at the end of the day, go back to your common room and have an interesting intellectual debate about China's GDP, Health Care or even the mediocrity of Georgetown Cupcakes.
