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.

Finally, 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!

First, we'll be at our weekday downtown location, Bartlett Hall, on Thursday at 4pm to watch the Hoyas battle in the quarterfinals. Then, if we win, our plan was to be at Bus Stop Friday, but because of a private party, we'll be down the street at Bar None, where the owner of the Bus Stop is buying us $300 worth of drinks for the trouble! Finally, if we make it to Saturday night's championship game, we'll be in the front area of Lightning Tavern, to hopefully watch the Hoyas bring home a trophy! Great drink specials at all locations. We ask you to please RSVP if you're planning on coming to any of the game watches, so we'll have any idea of the crowd we'll have.

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 less than $150 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.
