Bit of a walk up hill to get there but worth it, in my opinion. The grounds are lovely and well kept. Walk down the quaint streets of Georgetown to get to the busy M Street.

The architecture at GW is amazing. Simply amazing. I have walked around at night and during the day. I chose to walk at night to see the lights, and it was cooler. Some of the buildings are breathtaking. Lucky students!

Georgetown University has it all. World class academics, friendly, engaged students, a commitment to service, and an incredible setting. If you have the good fortune of getting accepted at Georgetown it is the easiest choice of your life. Go with D.C. and go with Georgetown!
