Treasuring My Time at Home and Abroad

Treasuring My Time at Home and Abroad

Whether or not you trained for it, a semester spent studying abroad is a marathon. In the pursuit of “making the most of the short time abroad,” the only moments of rest are utilized recharging for the next outing. Every weekend, of course, must have a full itinerary. Perhaps it’s[Read More…]

Why MOOCs Won’t Make It Up The Hilltop

Last night, as I was having a drink with some new friends, I saw why online education has yet to disrupt the Hilltop, and probably won’t for the foreseeable future. Sitting and talking with other interns in D.C. for the summer, from Harvard, Vanderbilt, Brown, Georgetown and Bowdoin, I saw[Read More…]

Biking Up the Hilltop

With a nickname like the Hilltop, it seems implausible that Georgetown would ever receive an award for being friendly to cyclists. Yet, earlier in the academic year, Georgetown became the first school in the District of Columbia to be recognized as a bike-friendly university by the League of American Bicyclists.[Read More…]

Fitting in on the Hilltop

Those who know me best would never characterize me as a risk taker. I don’t ride rollercoasters, I refuse to drive when it’s raining and I go through bottles of Purell like it’s my job.

Every year we find ourselves forming mental to-do lists of all the things we are dying to try.

FOOTBALL | Tackles leader McCabe now tops on defense

It’s usually bad news when a school graduates its conference’s best defensive player. But this season, Georgetown simply reloads. Last year’s Patriot League defensive player of the year and All-American defensive end Andrew Schaetzke (MSB ’12) graduated in May, but in July, senior linebacker Robert McCabe took Schaetzke’s mantle when he was named conference preseason[Read More…]

Study Abroad Numbers Stable

Study abroad programs nationwide have now begun to rebound following the 2008 financial crisis, but the number of Georgetown students studying abroad never dropped during the downturn. According to the Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange released last week, study abroad participation dropped 0.8 percent in 2008-2009, the first[Read More…]

Coulter’s Words Defy Georgetown Values

After signing up for the Lecture Fund email list my freshman year, I have been to and seen plenty of exciting and informative events and speakers.

Making a Home on the Hilltop

Making a Home on the Hilltop

I only found out about Georgetown University through my random college searches as a senior in high school. My parents, strict Vietnamese refugee immigrants, were disappointed that their daughter didn’t get accepted by an Ivy League school. In the long run, I’m glad that I didn’t. I’ve carved something out[Read More…]

Jesuits Optimistic as Numbers Decline

As the number of Jesuits decreases at universities across the country, many institutions are renewing their focus on the Jesuit identity and developing innovative ways to maintain Jesuit culture — the Hilltop included.
