“I love being at GW because I can enjoy the excitement of city life and the intimacy of a college town.”
“I would definitely say that one major GW tradition is Panhellenic recruitment in the fall. There are 11 different sororities on campus, and hundreds of girls usually go through recruitment, so everyone sees tons of freshmen running around campus in dresses and heels.”
“GW's close proximity to the monuments and other national landmarks always amazes me. I like to go for runs along the tidal basin, and stop at the Lincoln Memorial along the way.”
“My favorite thing about GW is the feeling that I get when I walk out my door and see tourists, because it reminds me that people travel from all over the world to visit DC, when I get to live here and see it every day.”
“Washington, DC is a huge city of opportunity. I have had the chance to hold multiple internships at prestigious organizations while living here, something I would never be able to do in any other city.”
