The George Washington University

About The George Washington University

Since our capital city’s first days, people have traveled here for many reasons. They come to explore the past and to chart new futures. They come to ask questions and to seek expert answers. They come to start discourse and to remember in silence. They come to demand change and to be that change. They come to grow. They come to learn. They come to make history and join the ranks alongside many prominent GW alumni. Housed in a city unlike any other, our students gain an education unlike any other. The whole city is our classroom, and our students emerge not just with a diploma, but with experiences that could only happen at GW.

“I enjoyed the research advisor and I enjoyed the free reign that was given to me to do what I wanted”

“-- Worked with an advisor that taught me everything about what it's like to work in the field of research, how scientists across teams collaborate, how to code better, and so much more. I learnt so many soft and hard skills, I could not name them all. Truly the most fruitful experience because of the care and effort put in by my advisor into my learning.”
