Since 1796, nearly a dozen U.S. presidents have visited Georgetown’s campus. The university’s unique location at the center of the policy world has made it a particularly desirable place for presidential candidates and sitting presidents to amplify their policy positions on a number of issues — from the environment and international peace to national security and defense.

In celebration of these special moments and in recognition of Presidents Day, the McCourt School of Public Policy - Georgetown University took a deep dive into on-campus policy addresses from former commanders-in-chief.

“We have people who have traveled with the president on Air Force One, people who have been in the intelligence community – there's just a million different people who have had serious careers, and now they're in class with you.”

Since its founding in 1870, the Georgetown University Law Center has had a part-time evening program for students who wish to pursue law degrees while still working full-time. In fact, the Law Center’s first class of 25 students were all evening students who kept their day jobs. Today, Georgetown’s evening program is considered the country’s best, with 30-some evening students enrolling every year.

Before first-year Georgetown University School of Medicine students began their highly anticipated first day of anatomy lab, they paused for an interfaith blessing led by Father James Shea, S.J., Rabbi Daniel Schaefer and Imam Yahya Hendi to reflect on the generosity of anatomical donors in offering their bodies to further their medical education.

“Let us pause for a moment to quiet and center ourselves and become aware of the presence of our donor cadavers,” began Shea. “They gave you their last gift, entrusted you with their bodies, because they believed in you and wanted to help you become skilled, wise and compassionate physicians.”
