Thanks to comfortable housing and a great city, the politically active GW student body is among the happiest in the country, according to the Princeton Review’s annual survey of colleges and universities. GW placed second on the list of “politically active Students,” third in “great college towns,” sixth in “dorms like palaces” and 20th in “happiest students.” GW was also named a “college with a conscience.”
Second place on the list of politically active students was a minor fall for GW, since the University topped the category last year. This year’s gold medal went to American University, another D.C. school.
The Princeton Review includes the survey as part of its annual college guide. More than 120,000 students at 368 colleges fill out the survey every year, according to the company.
