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.

Degree: Mechanical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

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.

Degree: Economics, Other
Graduation Year: 2010

GW's breadth of opportunities, while never handed to you, are there for the taking, helped make the GW experience unique and memorable. Between the many clubs, the internship opportunities and the relationships I built, it is undeniable that my experience at GW helped me successfully enter the career stage of my life. Take advantage of as much as you can, while also taking care to not spread yourself too thin.

Degree: Sociology
Graduation Year: 2003

GWU was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I received a dynamic education, was able to connect with a relatively diverse student body and lived in a city at the center of global governance. If you are interested in a career in public policy, nongovernmental organizations or business, GWU is the place to be, offering a plethora of internship and job opportunities in all of these areas.
