Georgetown Reunion Weekend

Are you coming?

There is no place like home
and there is no place like Georgetown...

Reunion Weekend 2017 provides a great opportunity to rediscover what made Georgetown "home" for you and to renew your lifelong connection to this special place. All members of the undergraduate classes of 1967, 1972, 1977, 1982, 1987, 1992, 1997, 2002, 2007 and 2012, as well as our Magis alumni (Class of 1966 and beyond) and School of Dentistry alumni are invited to come home to the Hilltop and reconnect with the spirit of Georgetown.

More than 4,000 alumni, friends and family members gather annually on campus for three days of celebration. It's a fantastic time to reconnect with friends and classmates and see how your Georgetown has grown into the university it is today. Weekend events include the traditional class parties, campus tours, activities for Hoyas of all ages and a variety of fascinating panels featuring some of our most prominent alumni as well as beloved faculty.
