The 224 Project


Red Square. There might not be a more perfect place to capture the vibrant life of Georgetown. After all, it is an area where people bribe you with cookies and homemade snow cones just so you’ll pick up a flyer or sign up for a particular organization. It is the home of delicious GUGS burgers on Fridays, people watchers, ambitious flyer-ers and stragglers during the week and even passionate club promoters during GAAP weekends. Still, because of our busy and hectic lives, it can often be very easy to zone out with our headphones in and lose sight of who is standing around us during that ordinary Red Square walk.

In order to take a second out of our crazy schedules and get to know our community a little better, The Hoya instituted a very special project. Last year, the 223 Project aimed to showcase the many faces of the Georgetown Community by randomly selecting 223 students, faculty, staff and administrators passing through, you guessed it, Red Square.

This year, the tradition continues as Georgetown enters its 224th year of existence. Photos and captions of some of the numerous faces that make up the university are live on the website,, as of today, Monday, April 22 (If we were basically in any country besides the U.S., the launch date would be 22/4. Get it?) Their pictures and bios will also be seen throughout campus in various locations:

The first floor corridor of Healy – April 22
Red Square – April 23
Leavey Center – April 24
The first floor corridor of Healy – April 25

Don’t miss out on this inspiring celebration of our school community!
