when you study at gw, your experience will be anything but typical. you might learn from pulitzer prize-winners, run into world leaders on campus or be challenged by the first lady to serve our community. but the real difference at gw is that as a student you’ll immediately put what you learn into action. from the center of washington, d.c., you’ll be able to explore hundreds of internship opportunities (in your field alone), take part in groundbreaking research that changes lives, join a student organization and volunteer with fellow colonials in the city or around the world. if you come to gw, you won’t just live in d.c. — you’ll become a part of the nation’s capital and make a difference in it every day.
