Do you remember John Carroll Weekend 2011 in San Francisco? Did you know that John Carroll Weekend is coming back to the West Coast, Los Angeles, in about a month, April 16-19?

Consider coming for the whole weekend, staying for a day, or even joining for a single event.

With spring sale fares for flights between the Bay Area and Los Angeles, this is a perfect opportunity to experience the best of Southern California with Georgetown. There are several Beverly Hills hotels with which Georgetown has negotiated special rates for the weekend, including a hotel specifically for young alumni, the Sixty Beverly Hills. Please click here for hotel information, and act soon, reservation cut-offs are approaching!

Events are filling up and others are being added, so we invite you to check out the schedule and register at http://jcw.georgetown.edu/2015/ so that you can be part of this special Georgetown tradition.
