Why did you choose Georgetown?

What has been your favorite team experience prior to this year?
Beating West Virginia in the 1st round of NCAAs in penalty kicks.

How do you give 110% for Georgetown?
Giving 110% is arriving home at 4 a.m. from an away trip, getting up later that morning for class, and going to practice that evening.

Thank you very much for supporting the athletic pursuits of the young adults at this university. It is through your generous giving that we are provided with the tools to succeed in the classroom, on the field, court, or track, and beyond.
