Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2012

Professors were thought leaders in their field. Amazing academic resources. Suuuuuuuper expensive. Not a strong sense of community if that's what you're looking for. Extremely smart peers that challenge you. I fealt out of place as a scholarship student in a school full of rich kids at first, but the relationships that were made and the friends that I still have were priceless. There is nowhere quite like DC, and I would do it all again in a heartbeat.

Degree: Statistics, General
Graduation Year: 2009

It gave me the city life experience but as a result I missed out on the college campus experience, there was no football team and greek life was a little weird and spread out so there wasn't a big sense of community for me. The statistics department was FANTASTIC, small and intimate with incredible teachers but I found the other departments somewhat lacking.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2014

GWU is a very challenging school based upon your school. It is also a very expensive school, with very sophisticated night life. The social life at GWU is dominated by either greek life affiliation, political affiliation, or socioeconomic status.

Degree: Statistics, General
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.
