Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2012

Great location for internships and a fun college experience. The administration is terrible and could not care less about the students, however. Going here will help you get a high-paying, rewarding job.

Degree: Mathematics
Graduation Year: 2009

I got a good education but felt the school was overpriced. It was fun to live in the city and felt independent but also lacked a true college campus feeling which was missed. The school "spirit" or alumni pride is almost non-existent for me personally and I wish there had been a football team. Over-all, if I had to make the decision again I likely would go to the school in my home state and pay less for a similar education but that being said, the department I graduated in was excellent, I loved the professors and the class sizes were tiny.

Degree: Museology/Museum Studies
Graduation Year: 2012

The degree program was amazing. It was very learner-driven and I had the opportunity to build important connections that served me later in my career. I can't recommend it enough. The University was difficult to navigate in terms of almost every administrative aspect and seemed to offer very little support for making sense of its layers of bureaucracy. Museum Education Program = 10; GWU = 4.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (NP)
Graduation Year: 2015

While an online program offers flexibility and convenience my experience is that you lose the connectivity and personal attention a traditional program provides. In my experience I felt like I was working alone and when issues arose it was difficult to connect to professors on a human level I instead felt like a "student". I had started my FNP at a different institution where I attended classes and participated in groups and I felt like I was making a much larger impact then at GWU. Trying to solve problems on a blackboard can get frustrating as you are in your Masters program and as well dealing with children, husbands, employment and life issues. GWU requires you come in for testing at various points in your school program and again it felt unorganized and not true to life.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2012

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

Business--or something more technical.

What advice can you offer other students?

Do what you love for fun, major in something that can sustain the lifestyle you wish to have. Move t the city where you see yourself and is best for your major:: Politics: DC, Arts: NYC, Natural Sciences: coast, etc. And yes, Undergraduate is just as important as Masters bc without a good foundation you cant move ahead.

Degree: Political Science
Graduation Year: 2013

Tell us about your college experience.

GWU was a good fit for me. It did feel quite large at times but as the courses became more specialized I was truly able to make good relationships with my Professors and benefit form my program. The location in DC made it so easy to get internships which were crucial to my development as a professional.

Would you get the same degree if you could start over?

I would choose the same major of International Affairs but I would have minored in Business or Marketing and Communications.

What advice can you offer other students?

Think about your minors. Study what you love but make sure that you also learn skills that are transferable to the field you hope to work in. Internships are key!
