  1. I will be attending GW Elliott School for my master’s in international affairs. I have a number of questions regarding the school, neighborhood, and the city itself. I would appreciate it if anyone can answer my queries in the following categories. Housing: From my communication with the GWU Housing, it seems like only the Aston houses GWU graduate students. What other housing options are available near the Elliott School? I understand that because of GWU’s location in Washington, DC, it is difficult to find an affordable, yet safe housing. Are there any nearby off-campus apartments that are furnished? Safety: For my undergraduate degree, I had attended a large state university in a safe Midwestern college town. I currently live abroad in one of the largest metropolitan cities in the world, but it is still safe. From what I heard about and read online, it seems like Washington, DC is a city that has severe crime and safety problems. I will be spending most of my time in Foggy Bottom, but which neighborhoods should I stay away from? Is safety a problem at GWU and Foggy Bottom? Is it dangerous for anyone, especially a female, to walk outside at night? I am used to walking outside after sunset without any fear of being harmed. Jobs/Internships: It seems like the ESIA is more career-oriented when compared to similar programs of other schools. How helpful is the ESIA Career Services when it comes to helping students find daytime internships and jobs? I understand that the classes are in the evening, so I would definitely want to use the daytime to build my resume.
