It is honestly a dream due to its location. Right at the heart of DC it not just perfect due to the amazing pastimes and the welcoming nature of the campus and its members, but because its location makes is home to so many internship opportunities. From congressional internships on Capitol Hill, to NIH internships, to internships at GW's very own hospital, GW is the place to be, a true dream.

George Washington is the only place I'd want to be. There's no other college in the world that is just a few steps from the White House and the Lincoln Memorial. GW is a large school, with a diverse student body who all come together for fun events such as this week's Midnight Breakfast with games and prizes and basketball games where we all cheer on the Colonials!
