John Carroll Awards Weekend Returns to the West Coast in April
Link: Top Ten Reasons a Young Alum Should Attend John Carroll Weekend
Please e-mail us at NorCalHoyas@gmail.com if you would like to connect with fellow NorCal Hoyas down there!
For more information and to register, click here



If you've never been to (or heard of) John Carroll Weekend (JCW), this year's JCW Los Angeles offers a fantastic opportunity to experience the best of Georgetown without leaving the west (best) coast! JCW is the largest annual gathering of Georgetown alumni, typically drawing in more than 1,500 attendees, and is held in a different major city each year (the last two JCWs were in Miami and London, and it was held in San Francisco in 2011). During JCW there is an array of unique and exclusive social, cultural, and intellectual events, bringing out the best of what Georgetown is all about. JCW 2015 in Los Angeles is expected to be the largest gathering EVER of Georgetown alumni west of the Mississippi!

We are hoping to have a strong showing of Bay Area Hoyas attending JCW LA! With flights between the Bay Area and LA as low as $118 round-trip (as of last Kayak search), this is a perfect opportunity to reconnect with our SoCal brethren and experience LA the Georgetown way.Registration for the weekend is free (though most, but not all, events have a cost) and some events are already filling up - so we encourage you to register soon!


There are several Beverly Hills hotels with which Georgetown has negotiated special rates for the weekend, including the "young alumni hotel," the Sixty Beverly Hills. We are considering ways that our NorCal Hoyas members can coordinate travel and lodging, depending on interest. Please e-mail us (norcalhoyas@gmail.com) if you're interested in coordinating with other Bay Area Hoyas, and we can connect those who are interested.
