What Students Are Saying

3.80 Average Rating
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!

From my visit to the Foggy Bottom campus on June 12, 2012, I learned and saw first hand how amazing this school was. The school of business that I plan to attend even set up a one on one tour and counseling session. It was extremely helpful to hear from a current student worker.
