GU European Club

GU European Club The Georgetown University European Club, founded in 2004, welcomes all Hoyas with an interest in all things European.
(3)

The European Club, open to ALL students of any background, was founded in 2004 to bring together Europeans, Americans, and anyone who has interest in anything relating to Europe on Georgetown's campus. The club provides a forum for members to share knowledge about ALL European countries and the European Union and to become more familiar with the integration process. Of course, social events - including Embassy events as well as more informal gatherings - are also an important aspect of the club. This club was not created only for Europeans, but for everyone who wants to learn more about Europe and the EU, socialize with both internationals and the internationally-inclined on campus, and most of all, be part of a great campus organization.

The Georgetown European Club and friends braved the snow to visit the Embassy of Finland last Wednesday. While we were impressed by the snow-day turnout, the Finnish diplomats were unfazed - one casually mentioned she had biked to work that morning.

We were treated to an engaging talk on Finnish culture and foreign policy and enjoyed authentic Finnish food in the beautifully designed embassy.

For our final event of the year, the Georgetown European Club took fifty students to the French Embassy.

The French Ambassador spoke to students for an hour, answering critical questions about French politics, U.S./EU relations, and the rise of populism across Europe. He was candid and open with us and had everyone laughing at his witty quips about Macron, Trump, and the French!

"There is an increasing discourse - I won't go so far as to say consensus, but certainly discourse - that we are past peak populism now."

A big thanks to Professor Eric Langenbacher, who gave an engaging talk on the state of German politics this Thursday. We don't know which we liked more - his clear-cut analysis of the German political field or his awesome 'Danke Merkel' shirt!
