Degree: Law
Graduation Year: 2019

The law school is great. Plenty of teachers with expertise in their respective fields. The school has a lot of great resources, especially the career center, and it's great to go to school in DC if you are looking to get experience in government or in the private sector.

Degree: Public Health
Graduation Year: 2017

The college offers plenty of opportunity for students to make the best of earning a credible education. I presume the public health topics discussed in the courses were also discussed in other public health programs at different universities. However, GWU also offered practicum experiences, research opportunities, and relationships with organizations within and around the community for internship opportunities. These opportunities contribute to student being able to not only gain experience in the field of their study, but to also work on building a network, which is important when exploring job opportunities. The only thing potential student should be aware of is this institution is far from being affordable. This is one of the most expensive institutions in the nation! Keep that in mind if you're taking out student loans! The scholarships the school offered were not highly advertised and not easy to get. Even for me as a veteran. My overall debt shot up significantly due to the loans I took out at this university.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2019

I chose the program thinking it was highly rated. I did fine in the program, but it is very poorly run. Little to no assistance from instructors. You must find your own clinical sites with no aid or guidance from the school. Program is extremely disorganized and staff cares very little about students. Staff can be degrading in addition to lacking knowledge and insight. Almost all of my classmates regret choosing this school for the FNP program.

Degree: English
Graduation Year: 2008

Attending GWU has been an amazing experience! GWU is somewhat diverse because there are many international students drawn to our Nation's capital. The dorms vary based on the location some of them are really modern, but others need some repairs and renovation. Campus meal plan is pretty good. The campus is very much urban, which is exactly what I am looking for! Its boundaries lie around the Whitehouse in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood. GWU provides a great academic experience for politics-oriented students, great professors, great campus location, and access to great internship opportunities around Washington.

Degree: Paralegal
Graduation Year: 2017

I received a top notch education at GW. The professors were phenomenal and even though the courses were online, the classes are set up to where you feel like you are sitting in a classroom with everyone. This program was very difficult, but definitely worth the journey. I have learned how to look for and find answers to very difficult topics. The professors went out of their way to help the students learn. I definitely feel prepared for a great career in law.

Degree: International Relations and Affairs
Graduation Year: 2004

Right in the middle of Washington, DC, mere blocks away from the White House and State Department, GWU is the perfect place to study International Affairs. The location gives students access to incredible extracurricular activities and resources, such as foreign embassy events, but the school itself also goes out of its way to the bring the world to its campus. Interested students are even invited to get involved in events such as foreign policy colloquia. Faculty are experienced, informed and responsive, as are program advisers. Of course, when students need a break from studying, the campus is a also a great place to hang out and make friends. Dorms are comfortable and community oriented, and the campus offers varied and interesting events of all sorts all year round.

Degree: Fine Arts
Graduation Year: 2006

GW is not a traditional choice for art majors. I chose it for the location and access to some of the best free art museums. This combined with the study -abroad placement I was able to connect with through the school provided me with an incredible experiential education in art history and interior design. As with any school, the experience of the program and professors is subjective and personal. I found the program well established and designed with thoughtful and well rounded requirements that set me up with creative and artistic skills as well as professional practice. My professors were well established in various fields and most were available and eager to support me with finding work and internships during and after school.

Degree: Communications
Graduation Year: 2011

The George Washington University is an excellent choice for undergraduate admissions! With it's location in the heart of DC, the culture is unbeatable. Plus, all students attending for 4 years get to live in DC during a US Presidential Election and Inauguration, which is a priceless experience. Course and academics are incredible and you will have a leg up from other students who do not get the outlet of DC in their fingertips.

Good classes, professors, and workload. Campus / city life is unique experience. School is exceptionally generous with scholarship. Study Abroad opportunities are abundant and lots of stipends / grants to be found. Regarding politics, there is always a visiting conference or speaker.
