One Tradition
Unites Us All

September 21-23, 2018

Every fall, Georgetown alumni from around the world once again gather at their home on the Hilltop. We invite you to join your fellow classmates and Hoyas of all ages in the tradition that unites us all: Homecoming Weekend 2018.


The weekend includes opportunities to go to class with your favorite professors, catch up with old friends, and introduce yourself to new ones. Wear your blue and gray with pride, practice chanting "Hoya Saxa!" as loud as you can and get ready to create new memories this year at Homecoming!
