About JCW

Georgetown welcomes alumni, family and friends of the university for a weekend of social, cultural and intellectual engagement at John Carroll Weekend Rome 2016. A trademark celebration of the Georgetown University Alumni Association, this exciting annual event has brought together the Hoya community since 1952. The four-day weekend will be filled with exclusive signature events and specially curated outings, with select access to some of Rome's most historic and awe-inspiring locations.

This will be a rare chance to experience one of Europe's most beautiful cities, as we gather together with alumni, faculty members, expert speakers and distinguished leaders from across the world for our first alumni weekend in the Eternal City.

Since 1952, John Carroll Weekend has assembled the global Georgetown community along with alumni, parents and friends to celebrate the best of Georgetown in a different city each year. The weekend of educational, social and cultural events offers participants the chance to learn more about the host city while engaging with one another and with Georgetown's outstanding faculty and university leaders.
