About John Carroll Weekend Seattle

In April 2018, Georgetown will welcome alumni, family, and friends to John Carroll Weekend Seattle, four days of social, cultural, and intellectual programming options in the heart of the Pacific Northwest.

A trademark celebration of the Georgetown University Alumni Association, this annual gathering features an extended weekend packed full of specially curated events and excursions. April 2018 will focus on Seattle as an important center for technology, business, cuisine, and art set in an area of breathtaking natural splendor.

Since 1952, John Carroll Weekend has offered alumni, parents, and friends a chance to celebrate the best of Georgetown in a different city each year. Participants experience an insider's look at the host city while engaging with one another as well as Georgetown's renowned faculty and university leaders.
