Who can attend Hoya Saxa Weekend?

Hoya Saxa Weekend is a special opportunity for accepted applicants to experience campus life. This weekend is designed to especially benefit applicants who may have had less exposure to college than their peers. Students from historically underrepresented backgrounds are encouraged to apply, but Georgetown welcomes and considers applications from any and all interested students without regard to race, color, religion, age, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, veteran, or other protected status.

Unfortunately, we are not able to offer a program for parents and/or families. Family members interested in visiting campus should visit the GAAP website.

Please keep in mind that while we do our best to accommodate everyone but our resources are limited. Participation in the program will be granted on a firstcome, first served basis.
