Georgetown is #GSProud

GSP

You may have noticed that today Hoyas are taking to social media with cover photos, testimonials and the hashtag #GSProud. Well, this is all part of a campaign headed by the Georgetown Scholarship Program (GSP) to celebrate the GSP community and its contributions to the Georgetown community and to raise awareness for GSP in general! GSP is a program that largely focuses on serving Georgetown students who are first generation college students. Within GSP, students have access to an accomplished alumni network, career assistance, mentoring programs, campus connections and more. GSP’s innovative program helps Georgetown to be a global leader in enrolling scholarship students and providing them with dedicated support throughout their college experience.

To further the #GSP love, 4E has complied some Facebook testimonials:

“My mom was hooked on crack. We were always alone and never had any food in the house, so I only ate at school. And we never had any electricity. So every night I had to do my homework in the hallway.”
“Do you remember the happiest moment of your life?”
“When I got my scholarship to Georgetown.”
