Washington DC Schools II: George Washington

As the Media and Public Affairs webpage from George Washington University puts it, the campus is "[l]ocated in the middle of political Washington." That's absolutely correct, as the White House is just a few blocks from GWU, with the U.S. Capitol another dozen blocks (roughly) further down Pennsylvania Ave.

The Washington Monument and various government buildings (shown below in a photo I took from my hotel room) are also near GWU.

The university proudly announces its presence with statues and signage...

GWU blends in well with its urban setting, reminding me somewhat of Boston University.

George Washington also, however, has some green space...
