Most Georgetown passions begin with a student organization. One of the first clubs I joined upon arriving at Georgetown was Prison Outreach, a service program directed by the Center for Social Justice. In Prison Outreach, Georgetown students tutor incarcerated people in jails in Arlington and Alexandria, Va.  I joined because an influential high school teacher…

I spent my spring break in London this year—seeing family, mostly, but also doing embarrassing tourist stuff like taking pictures with the guards in front of Buckingham Palace. On a bus tour, the guide extols the virtues of the National Health Service (NHS), Britain’s socialized healthcare system. “It was set up for the people,” he…

As another mass murder of school children strikes the country, the fire of a familiar debate is reignited.

Georgetown’s Walsh School of Foreign Service (SFS) is preparing to celebrate its centennial in the coming academic year. This is truly a momentous occasion for a school that has produced so many leaders in the field of international affairs over the past century, including presidents, ambassadors, monarchs, and legislators.

“We must, therefore, gain possession of ourselves, by asceticism, in order that we may be able to give ourselves to God.” –Thomas Merton You may have seen people walking around with ash on their foreheads last Wednesday. This, of course, was not a result of the Georgetown community forgetting en masse to wash their faces…

“Let us mourn black and brown men and women, those killed extrajudicially every 28 hours. Let us lament the loss of a teenager, dead at the hands of a police officer who described him as a demon. “Let us weep at a criminal justice system, which is neither blind nor just. Let us call for…
