GW Experience


 

When you live in Washington, D.C., you’ll watch world leaders debate, become a champion for the causes you care about and participate in events on the national and international stage. You’ll also take midnight walks to the monuments, watch the Colonials play, discover your new favorite band, join an acapella group or learn that you love Thai food.

At GW, the city is a part of our campus and adds to your experience as a Colonial. As a GW student you'll make D.C. your own, and motivate others to do the same. Both on campus and across D.C., you'll drive change and pursue your interests passionately. Whether on Foggy Bottom or The Vern or down Pennsylvania Avenue, life at GW is as rich and diverse as the city we call home.

I found the student body at GW really driven. If you look at GW students, every single one is passionate about something, whether it's a club sports team, something that you're studying, doing research, a job, an internship. That's something that I think is really uplifting to be around.”

Every GW student is unique—where you come from, what you’ve experienced or how you spend your time. We know that everyone has different needs to succeed. That’s why we do everything we can to support students of every background. From disability support to career counseling, military and veteran services to multicultural groups, we have resources and opportunities for each student to thrive.
