Today marks the launch of The Hoya’s 223 Project, an effort to capture the spirit of Georgetown through the faces that make up our community.
Georgetown has been around for 223 years now, so we rounded up 223 students, faculty, staff and administrators as they passed through Red Square, took their pictures and asked them to tell us about themselves.
It’s easy to walk through Red Square quickly and avoid eye contact with the strangers that are trying to get your attention (it’s okay, we’ve all done it). But by getting people to slow down for a minute and chat with us, we’ve put together a project that shows just how diverse the Georgetown community is, on many levels.
So take a look at the website to see all 223 faces (and meet the creators!) and learn something about your community. We also have the photos on exhibit: they’re on display on Healy 1 today and in the Leavey Lobby on Wednesday and Thursday.
