What was your favorite year at Georgetown? Why?
That’s tough, because each year was great for different reasons, but I would say senior year! These last two semesters have been full of solidifying friendships, bar crawls during Dis-O and Dis-0 2.0 were some of the most fun nights out in college, and reflecting on my Georgetown experience as a whole and how blessed I am.
Junior year – knew the most people on campus. Senior friends still around, and knew tons of underclassmen. Also, in important positions in student groups.
Every year seems so uniquely different and great in its own way, but I think sophomore year was the most fun! However, all the nights I’ve spent on the Tombs dance floor this year makes senior year one of the best, for sure!
Sophomore year: had found my friends, understood how the school worked and how to do well in classes, knew my way around campus and I also did not have the stress Junior/Seniors have finding internships and jobs and planning for after graduation.
Too hard to choose, definitely the best 4 years so far!
What was your most memorable experience? Why?
Cheering on the basketball team with my two best friends!
Swimming in the fountain during sophomore year! After a night out, around 4am, my friend and I decided it was going to be the night we would swim in the fountain. Once we approached Dahlgren quad, we kicked our shoes off and started sliding around the fountain laughing our butts off. I am happy to say that I checked that Georgetown tradition off the bucket list!
Homecoming, Georgetown Day, late nights at Tombs and running to the White House the night of Obama’s re-election in 2012. But of course, I have some great memories from classes and academic experiences, too that will (hopefully) stick with me forever. In summary: thanks for the memories, Georgetown!
Singing in the Let Freedom Ring Choir on MLK Weekend during freshman, sophomore and senior year. It is an incredible demonstration of what our university stands for today, and also so much fun!
There are too many memorable experiences to count and I can’t name just one because each of my favorite experiences at Georgetown is memorable in its own way and has its own unique story behind it.
Thanks for the memories, seniors! We will miss you so much and cannot wait to see you all back on the Hilltop soon! Congrats, Class of 2015!
