Georgetown has created an amazing atmosphere where students are truly encouraged to pursue their passions. I've never been exposed to so many opportunities and passionate people before. While the competition is initially intimidating, you discover that everyone here is here to learn from one another and that is what truly makes Georgetown amazing.
