Campus Visit Notes for The George Washington University


Visit Description:

We were told that many GW students ended up becoming an intern at some place within Washington DC. Our tourguide had been an intern at the National Archives, and he knew someone who had interned at the Austrailian Embassy. There is also an internship at the White House that had been held by a GW student for the past 7 years. Sounds like there were many opportunities for unique and interesting internships.

Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:

Many different places to eat on M Street.
