Georgetown is gorgeous year-round, but there's something truly special about walking to class with the changing leaves and Healy clocktower as your backdrop.


2) GU Farmers' Market

The Farmers' Market brings fresh fall produce to Red Square every Wednesday! (Not to mention a variety of lunch options and the ever-famous Belgium waffle.)


3) Hoya Hoops Madness

Hey, Hoyas! Let's make a moment to remember on October 16th at 8 PM! #HoyaHoopsMadness

Hoya Hoops Madness is the place to be if you want a preview of the Hoya basketball teams, and this year GU Athletics managed to bring 2Chainz. Best of all? It's free! 


4) Lau 2 During Midterms

Nothing builds solidarity like an all-nighter... Find a table, grab a coffee (Midnight Mug is open until 2 a.m.), and do work, son! 

5) Homecoming

Reconnect with (or meet!) alums and dance the day away to an '80s cover band before heading over to the Hoya's first home football game of the season.


6) Capital Bike Share

No doubt about it, the best study-break is a bike ride along the waterfront to the monuments.

7) Pumpkin Picking

Grab some friends and flannels and enjoy a day off-campus at one of the many pumpkin patches in Maryland or Virginia. 


8) Trick or Treating on Embassy Row

Trick or Treating gets global on Halloween in DC! Throwback to your grade school days and go door-to-door for candy and culture from all of DC's Embassies. 

9) Presidential Debate Viewing Parties

Healey Family Student Center hosts a variety of events, but the Presidential Debates always attract a huge crowd. Stay informed, meet experts, and grab a free slice of pizza.


10) Rangila

Whether you're a dancer on-stage or a live audience-member, Rangila brings together the entire Georgetown community. This annual cultural show is put on by Georgetown's South Asian Society to spread awareness of contemporary and cultural issues from the region.
