As President DeGioia shared earlier this week, Georgetown has been carefully monitoring and responding (new window) to the COVID-19 outbreak to ensure, to the best of our ability, the safety and well-being of our entire community. Part of that response has included the cancellation or postponement of all university events, including alumni events, through May 15, and the postponement of Commencement. That last was a decision of special poignancy and deep regret that it was clearly unavoidable.
Recognizing the ongoing nature of the coronavirus threat and the likelihood of continued restrictions on travel and gatherings in the relevant timeframe, we have decided to postpone Reunion Weekend 2020 until further notice.
Celebrating our lifelong connection to the university through our quinquennial reunions is among our most cherished traditions at Georgetown. Nearly 5,000 alumni and many family members attending reunion every June suggests as much, and I know reunion 2020 was trending towards setting an attendance record before the events of recent weeks.
While joining together on campus is not going to be possible in May, we do hope this proves to be a postponement only. We are exploring options for celebrating with you in different ways and/or at a later time or times. Given the still-evolving impacts of the outbreak, this is going to take some time. We will do this work in consultation with reunion class leaders, and we will share updated details as we have them.
For those who registered for Reunion Weekend: I deeply regret the inconvenience I know this decision causes. You will receive a full refund for all Reunion Weekend events in the coming days.
If you made a hotel reservation: Please remember to cancel your reservation as soon as possible. To review your hotel’s cancellation policy, please refer to the reservation confirmation email sent to you by the hotel.
For more information, please visit our FAQ page (new window).
Please know that Georgetown honors and appreciates your personal history with the university and we look forward to celebrating you and your reunion however and as soon as we are able.
