What I Learned At Georgetown

I had intended this column to be a reflection on my four years at Georgetown, but I’m having trouble looking further back than last week. Rev. Howard Gray, S.J., who spent the final year of his decade of service to Georgetown acting as interim Vice President of Mission and Ministry, returned to campus last week…

I’m sorry. I really am. I’m sorry that I’m not going to ask for a promotion. I’m sorry that I use exclamation points! I’m sorry I apologize so much. I really am. Because realistically, I’ll probably achieve more “success” if I act differently— more egocentric, more harsh, more direct. More masculine. In this world that…

My time on the Hilltop is winding down. People have been telling me for years this moment would come, but when you’re a freshman or sophomore, it’s easy to dismiss this message. Senior year can feel like an impossibly distant future. Now, suddenly, that future is my present. One of the many items remaining on…

I enthusiastically watched one of my closest friends, along with…

“I do not want to be in a religion in which I am ‘allowed’ to have a crucifix… In people who are Catholics, or call themselves Catholics, I want the idea not only liked but loved and loved ardently, and above all proudly proclaimed.” – G.K. Chesterton At Georgetown, unlike most universities in the United…

As someone who grew up in the island city-state of Singapore, from a society and community very different than Georgetown, I can attest to the claim that the Hilltop is home to an exceptionally motivated and pre-professional community.
