The George Washington University is an amazing place to study. As a Political Communications major in the School of Media and Public Affairs, I have found that no other school offers such a specialized program so perfectly fitted to my interests. GW is a great place to be if you're looking for a school that isn't too small or too big. While a majority students are from the Northeast, the school has an incredibly diverse student body which is always exposing you to others' cultures. Professor's are kind of a hit or miss.

    Many students here describe themselves as people who work hard, play hard, which I've found to be accurate. GW is very oriented toward International Affairs, Political Communications, Political Science, and Business Majors; prospective arts/humanities majors might want to look elsewhere. Greek Life is an encompassing part of the social scene here, so if that's not your thing, you might want to skip GW.

    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.
