"There’s a really unique type of student who ends up at GW. It’s not a conventional school choice, and there’s an even more selective group who end up in a program like . . . political communications. Those people are just amazing, and I’ve made some really good friends over the last couple of years, and that’s what’s going to be the most important thing I take away from my college experience—the people I met.”
