Again, I'm in a different life situation than most students. In the DPT program but most people in that program enjoy health and fitness activities and the urban lifestyle that DC has to offer (bars, restaurants, museums, etc.). I also enjoy sports and fitness. I love soccer (professional and youth sports) and fitness/wellness but experience these things a little differently since I already have a family including 4 children.

The beauty of GWU is that there IS no typical GWU student. I'm living proof! I'm a 25 year old junior. Anyone who wants a non-traditional campus experience (the campus is spread out all across D.C.!) where you will learn from leading experts in Political Science and International Affairs, GWU is for you!

The typical Gdubb-er is someone who has the drive to travel and change the world. If you have a passion for politics and/or the choices they are making then GWU is the school for you. If I had to describe the student population in a few words they would have to be: diverse and informed.
