Big East Tournament Game Watch - Friday at 4:00 p.m. (and maybe Saturday)

After a very gratifying win versus Villanova in the Tournament quarter finals (full story here) the Hoyas return to Madison Square Garden, Friday at 4:00 p.m. We're back at the Bus Stop at 1901 Union Street to watch. I know it's somewhat early to leave work, but come on! Don't you deserve it? Haven't you worked hard enough during the last month? Don't you owe it to yourself to cut out of work a little early (on a Friday no less) and root on the Hoyas to victory? I think you deserve this. So be there!

If the Hoyas are "lucky" enough to win, they will play for the Big East Championship Saturday at 6:00 p.m. T-shirts will be on sale for $15 during the game.

To summarize:
Friday, March 14 at 4:00 p.m. and if the team wins... Saturday, March 15 at 6:00 p.m. Be There!!!

NCAA Tournament Game Watches Start Next Week
Seedings for the upcoming NCAA Tournament will be announced this Sunday evening. The Hoyas will play their first game either Thursday, March 20 or Friday, March 21. We'll send out an email once the schedule is announced.

Event | Thur. Mar 6, 6 PM | Visiting Georgetown Professor Lecture - UPDATED

Who: Georgetown Professor Francis Slakey
Topic: Mission Possible: Why President Bush Signed Georgetown Students' Ideas into Law
Where: Mendocino Room at The Palace Hotel - 2 New Montgomery Street, corner with Market - map
Cost: Free - Your membership dues at work.
Please drop us an email if you plan on attending so we can plan appropriately.

The Georgetown Alumni Club of Northern California is excited to have Professor Francis Slakey, the Upjohn Lecturer in Physics and Biology and the co-Director of the Program on Science in the Public Interest at Georgetown University visiting us here in San Francisco.

As a courtesy to
local alumni, Professor Slakey will be giving a lecture
regarding his work getting Georgetown Students' ideas in front of Congress in his discussion, Mission Possible: Why President Bush Signed Georgetown Students' Ideas into Law. This discussion will delve into the reality that it's more likely that a high school baseball player will become a professional, than a bill will become law. With such odds against them, how were Georgetown science students able to get President Bush to sign their ideas into law? Professor Slakey will discuss how such students were able to identify a social problem, develop a political solution, and ultimately lobby Congress where they were able to put their scientific training into practice.

We are looking forward to hearing Professor Slakey's thoughts on this timely issue. Please join us. Light refreshments will be provided.

Georgetown Women's Leadership Initiative Semi-Annual Distinguished Speaker Panel, in conjunction with The Financial Women’s Association & The Georgetown University Alumni Association, presents"Building & Cultivating a Successful Network" Inspiring, developing, and connecting women… Semi-Annual Distinguished Speaker Panel presented in conjunction with The Financial Women’s Association and The Georgetown University Alumni Association

Cultivate your Network before you need it! Formal and informal networks are critical to career success. They provide access to information, informal knowledge, and connections to opportunities. However, not everyone is equally adept at building their personal networks. Moreover, research shows that women’s organizational networks tend to be more sparse and marginalized than those of men. The most obvious choices for network building are not always the smartest, whereas sometimes the least apparently promising connections can prove to be quite fruitful. Come join us for an evening of advice about building and maintaining your personal network to maximize opportunities and success.

Speakers include:
Doreen Woo Ho, President, Wells Fargo Consumer Credit Group
Hendy Dayton, Business Development Director, YourOnRamp
Ann Marie Lynch (C'95), Wells Fargo
Moderated by Dr. Catherine Tinsley, Associate Professor, McDonough School of Business and Executive Director, Georgetown University Women’s Leadership Initiative
