I met up with my cousin, who was going to school here.

She gave me the usual tour of campus and we ate lunch at the cafeteria. Hmm. Reasonably priced for students and staff.

Nice campus. She loves the medical program there.

It’s a decent size campus and offers decent transportation for staff and students too. She seemed very comfortable and at ease. I felt rest assured she was all well on campus here.

Visited the college for my daughter to view and got a personal tour from my son’s best friend. The campus is beautiful and very historic. The grounds are currently under construction but it does not take away from the overall beauty. Can not help but to admire the architect of the buildings. Great school with a good reputation, strong academically and a lovely place to visit.

I graduated from Georgetown and this was my first trip back in almost 20 years. Aside from quite a few memories, the campus is worth visiting all on its own. As you walk through the gates at 37th and O Streets, you are greeted by the statute of John Carroll, the founder. Behind him is Healy Hall, the beautiful building in most people's pictures of Georgetown, and the original building that was the university. Go inside Healy and look at the great art and grand stairs at the far right end of the building. You should then go out the back doors of Healy so you get to see the courtyard with the fountain and Dahlgren Chapel. Thane a few minutes to go inside and enjoy the peace and beauty in the chapel as it is worth it whether you are religious or not. If you want the bookstore for gifts, you need to go across campus from Healy and on the way you can see the old Jesuit cemeteries that are located in areas on the campus. There are some newer buildings that don't match the original architecture as the university expanded over the years. Red Square is one of the better newer areas with a big red brick courtyard that you will go through on the most common path to the bookstore. Groups and speakers often hold events here including visiting dignitaries and political figures. Long ago, I got to meet Jesse Jackson after a speech here. If you love libraries, there are plenty. While the main library is in a giant 70s cement building, there are beautiful historic libraries you can still access. I look forward to a daytime return when I can walk the lawns.

we walked this campus expecting grandeur at every turn however we realized the historic buildings were amazing but the newer structures didn't follow the same feel. The campus is scattered without continuity.

If you are touring universities in the east, you must visit Georgetown University. The campus is gorgeous, so much history, and located in one if the best neighborhood in DC.

Georgetown’s campus is in the tony Georgetown neighborhood. It is peaceful to walk the campus from which you can see the Potomac river. There are some beautiful stone buildings near the campus main gate. A stroll around is worthwhile especially when you consider many famous people walked this campus.

We stopped by here on our pedicab tour and loved the building. It has character to burn and left you just wanting to watch it all day.

Great campus, although currently suffering from construction activities, good mix of ancient and modern infrastructure; conference hotel located inside the campus and different locations can be reached by a short walk.
