George Washington University students need not be concerned by their school’s academic ranking by a popular news periodical. The value of a GWU education comes primarily from the quality of its academicians, including a Nobel Prize recipient, and the access to two of the country’s greatest academic resource centers: the Library of Congress and the National Archives. Further, Washington affords students an opportunity to observe the proceedings of Congress and the Supreme Court.

GWU seniors should be proud of their first-class education. Yes, the cost is high, but years from today they will realize that it was worth every dollar spent.
