Georgetown University

The Nation's Oldest Catholic and Jesuit University

Its faculty and staff draw upon 450 years of Jesuit education and belief to create a world-class learning experience that forms well-rounded students through exposure to different faiths, cultures and beliefs. Not only is the university known for its academics, but also for its athletics. The men's basketball team is especially well-known, given its status as 1984 national champion and key member of the original Big East Conference. Whether you're a parent, prospective student or just happen to be in Washington D.C., Georgetown University is a world-class institution worth visiting for its history, beautiful campus, sports teams and more.
