Family Weekend

Fall 2020 Family Weekend is going Virtual!

Each fall, families, and friends of our first-year, sophomore, and transfer students are invited to participate in Family Weekend to reconnect with Georgetown University during the Fall 2020 semester. This Family Weekend will take place virtually on October 16-18, 2020. 

Throughout the weekend, families and their students are encouraged to attend faculty lectures, deans sessions, informational programming, and virtual meet-and-greets. Family Weekend programming is primarily geared toward first-year, sophomore, and transfer students and families; however, families of all current Georgetown students are welcome to participate. We hope that you can join us for Family Weekend in October!
