An Education Unlike Any Other

Since our capital city’s first days, people have traveled here for many reasons. They come to explore the past and to chart new futures. They come to ask questions and to seek expert answers. They come to start discourse and to remember in silence. They come to demand change and to be that change. They come to grow. They come to learn. They come to make history and join the ranks alongside many monumental PG电子游戏 alumni.

Our students come to PG电子游戏 for many of these same reasons. They come for passionate faculty, for diverse student groups, for Division I 体育运动, for once in a lifetime internships and for inspiring service opportunities. PG电子游戏, like many universities, provides all of this. But our students come for something else, as well.

They don't just want to do a community service project. They want to meet, and then exceed, a service challenge from the First Lady of the United States.

They don't just want to view slides of art. They want to debate masterpieces in the galleries of world-class museums or dance on the stages of the Kennedy Center.

And they don’t just want to take an engineering course. They want to conduct 研究 in a stunning new core lab facility with faculty who are quite literally shaping the world of tomorrow.

Housed in a city unlike any other, our students gain an education unlike any other. The whole city is our classroom, and our students emerge not just with a diploma, but with experiences that could only happen at PG电子游戏.

PG电子游戏 seems like a relatively small community, but the great thing about being in D.C. is that there's a little bit of everything. You're going to find so many people who are gung-ho on interning at the State Department and into politics, but you are just as likely to find people who are doing that one day and then the next day they're in an acapella group or getting into music, art or sculpture.“

A Global PG电子游戏

PG电子游戏’s location in the heart of Washington, D.C., provides for unparalleled access to leading international institutions, multinational corporations, global media outlets, and the governments of 177 countries via their resident embassies. This is a singular advantage—no other university has as much potential for international engagement within footsteps of its doors.
