Senior Parents Weekend is next weekend! One of the main events of the weekend is the Senior Auction, which takes place on Feb. 6. At this grand event, many items are auctioned off in an effort to raise money for families who can not afford to attend graduation weekend. And, in Georgetown tradition, things tend to get a little out of hand.
We all know that many Georgetown students/families enjoy the finer things in life, so one could only assume that what will be up for auction is just as crazy. We’ve heard some rumors, started some others. From our research, this is what we assume will be auctioned off:
1. A night in the ICC.
Description: DC’s hottest club is the Intercultural Center. Located near Red Square, this hidden gem has faculty offices, SFS secrets and a rocking computer lab. Who wouldn’t want to explore this place for a night?
Estimated Price: The price of one semester of tuition.
2. A trip to the family villa in España.
Description: Thanks to the donation of Family Z, Georgetown is happy to offer this fabulous villa on the Spanish coast. Houses 10 people, with 8 bedrooms, 6 bathrooms and two infinity pools. May or may not have been featured on House Hunters International.
Estimated Price: Why send two kids to Georgetown when you could spend 5 days at this hotspot!
3. A photo with John DeGioia.
Description: Get to know this Georgetown celebrity on a more personal level! Plus, this provides you with the best Instagram/Profile Picture/LinkedIn photo in the history of the Internet.
Estimated Price: Likely worth the same as your meal plan.
4. Chicken Finger Thursday in Your Home.
Description: CFT is a national treasure, so why not enjoy it in style? Package includes the omelet lady (“Get ya chicken fingers…”), all the condiments you could ever want and limitless fry refills.
Estimated Price: The price of a dinner at 1789, at least.
5. The Clock Hands.
Description: All Georgetown students dream of being “that kid” who steals the clock hands. Now that can be you! This includes an interview with a fake news source, certificate of accomplishment, and never ending fake fame.
Estimated Price: Like you could afford this. Also, shipping is not included.
Are you ready to become a big spender? Or will you just people watch? I can’t wait to see.
Note: Auctioned items are only speculation. We do not have the inside scoop.
