5 Things Hoyas Take for Granted on the Hilltop
Here at Georgetown, Hoyas are lucky enough to be surrounded by incredible sights, immense opportunities, and wonderful people - to the point where they become ordinary parts of our daily lives. Here’s a reminder of the top things we are #blessed to be exposed to here on campus!
1. The views.
Wherever you live post-grad – any big city, any small town – it’ll be almost impossible to score views as sweet as ours. Yes, your Village A apartment is dirty, but it has a window (AND a rooftop), and a million-dollar view right outside. There’s no shame in making it the main focus of your Instagram and Snapchat story on a regular basis.
2. The location.
Not only can we see a bunch of beautiful places from our campus, but we can visit them, too! We are in walking vicinity to the whole of DC – it takes a matter of minutes to walk (or better yet, take a quick GUTS bus ride) to a myriad of restaurants, museums, and monuments. Take your pick!
3. The people.
I feel confident in my opinion that after Georgetown, I will never again be surrounded by so many people who have a passion to learn both inside and outside of the classroom. Students here not only excel academically, but also want to know more about the world and other people, and we are able to inform one another and grow together. It sounds cheesy, but I love knowing that Hoyas are united in the shared desire to know and learn, from both our professors and one another.
4. The Classes
Have you ever really scrolled through our course list? We’ve got everything from “Pulp Fiction” to “Rock History” to “Sociology and Culture: Beyonce”. Get your requirements done and be sure to make room for some electives while you still can – you might find your new favorite subject!
5. The school spirit.
Again, I’m being cheesy, but I’m a sentimental senior, so let me say my piece. I honestly can’t remember a time when I attended a class during which not one person was wearing some sort of Georgetown memorabilia, whether it be a sweatshirt, T-shirt, or baseball hat. Students are proud to be Hoyas, and it’s that kind of mentality that makes the late nights in Lau and the early morning classes worth the struggle.
