My best experience at GW was my first month here living in Thurston Hall. Everyone had their door open and people would just walk into rooms and introduce themselves. Coming here knowing no one, it made it very easy to make friends.

My best experience on campus is staying for the summer while working for the admissions office. Seeing and experiencing DC without the stress of school and a fun job is the best way to spend the summer.
