Student Experience

As a GW student, 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, Washington, D.C., is a part of our campus and adds to your experience. 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 Mount Vernon or down Pennsylvania Avenue, life at GW is as rich and diverse as the city we call home.


Explore life at GW, life in D.C., academics at GW, and browse our undergraduate majors.

“When I visited GW as a prospective student, I remembered that there was such a strong sense of pride that all of the students had. Now that I am a student here, I share that pride. The student community is so diverse and you can really find your niche—there is something for everyone.”
