            In my time at GW, I feel I received my money's worth by truly taking part in everything the University and the District had to offer. I'd recommend doing this to anyone else who comes here. GW is not for the complacent. I wouldn't have gone anywhere else and had as good and educational of a time.

            1982-1984, MBA

            GW really allowed me to grow as an undergraduate. I also was able to study a wide variety of courses. Being in the heart of DC was amazing. International Finance Class Speaker, a guy I met locally who happened be head of SDR's at the IMF, GW's neighbor. Before the internet, we had the best access to libraries, probably anywhere. I liked it so much I went back for my MBA. And lots of good food is to be had around town...if you like food from all over the world...
