Family Weekend

Each year we invite the families and friends of our students to the Hilltop to experience various aspects of university life at Georgetown. Throughout the weekend, families and their students are encouraged to attend faculty lectures, information sessions, sporting events, receptions and performances while exploring campus and our nation’s capital. Family Weekend programming is geared toward first-year, sophomore, and transfer students and families; however, families of all current Georgetown students are welcome to register to attend. We hope that you can join us for Family Weekend this Fall.
