After months of planning and weeks of anticipation, last weekend marked Georgetown University’s celebration of the 25th anniversary of the election of former President Bill Clinton (SFS ’68).

The four days of events hosted by the Georgetown Institute of Politics and Public Service included movie screenings and panel discussions featuring former Clinton advisers, each seeking to highlight a unique aspect of Clinton’s approach to politics and leadership. The symposium, which coincided with Homecoming Weekend, culminated Monday afternoon with Clinton’s keynote address in Gaston Hall.
