Located in the historic Foggy Bottom area of Washington, D.C., George Washington University is the largest university and private land holder in the nation’s capital. Like other mid-to-large-sized schools in metro areas (Boston U, NYU, Columbia), the College Experience at GWU is as much about the city as the college itself. GWU really shines by delivering the heady experience of intense intellectual debate among friends, steeped in the exciting political environment of our Nation’s Capital.
