  • Being located in Washington, D.C., Georgetown has often had the honor of hosting a variety of presidents on campus. On this #PresidentsDay, we're looking back at the presidents who have visited the Hilltop (including one Georgetown alumnus)!

    In 1918, for instance, then Senator Warren G. Harding visited campus to inspect the Georgetown’s Students’ Army Training Corps (S.A.T.C.) during World War I. Here he is pictured standing with Georgetown University President Alphonsus J. Donlon, S.J., on the steps of Healy Hall.
