GW Students Most Politically Active in the Nation

Princeton Review recognizes GW political groups as among the country’s most popular.
GW Most Politically Active Students
August 12, 2013

George Washington University students are the most politically active in the nation, according to The Princeton Review.  The recognition was included in The Princeton Review’s 2014 edition of “The Best 378 Colleges,” released last Tuesday.  

The publication uses data collected from an online survey of 126,000 students across the nation. The most politically active designation was based on answers to the question, "How popular are political/activist groups on your campus?"

Active student organizations at George Washington include GW College Republicans, GW College Democrats and GW College Libertarians. The Foggy Bottom Campus’s proximity to the White House, Capitol Hill and a host of significant government agencies and non-governmental organizations gives politically oriented students a chance to learn from faculty who are experts in their field and gain unique internship and employment experience.

Students also get a front row seat to history every four years with the Presidential Inauguration on the National Mall, located just blocks from the Foggy Bottom Campus. GW’s location makes it a popular destination for influential political figures as well: Vice President Joe Biden, First Lady Michelle Obama, Second Lady Jill Biden and former U.S. Rep. and three-time presidential candidate Ron Paul all visited the university in just the last semester. 

The Princeton Review also recognized GW among colleges in high-rated cities, schools with the most popular study abroad programs, best residence halls and best college newspapers.
