Heather

Freshman · International Relations / Affairs

The classes are absolutely fantastic. Being in DC you never run out of things to do in your free time. Campus is only a few blocks from the White House and about 10 minutes to the monuments if you walk.

Freshman · International Relations / Affairs

I love GW because it offers me so many opportunities for future jobs, internships, and experiences. There is not a traditional campus but being in downtown DC is amazing and super fun. The classes are challenging but manageable and I genuinely feel like I'm furthering my education here.
