Happy Birthday Georgetown!

Today marked Georgetown’s 223rd birthday (we don’t even want to imagine the fire hazard posed by the candles on that cake), and the Campaign for Georgetown released a couple of commemorative treats online . There’s a tumblr where you can post notes and photos to the school on her special day; we’ve featured a few of our favorites here. An interactive timeline is also up over at the Campaign for Georgetown website. There are a few fun pieces of Georgetown history in the timeline, like President George Washington’s visit to Old North, a photo of our very first basketball team in 1907 (and our NCAA win 77 years later) and the conversion of the Hilltop Café into The Tombs. If only the Healy Pub were around today – we would love to share a celebratory drink with Georgetown tonight!
