Jesuit Heritage Week

JHW 2014

The last Sunday in January marks the beginning of Jesuit Heritage Week as the main campus becomes the venue for a host of special events and programming that explore and celebrate Georgetown's Jesuit history and traditions.  Planned and organized by a student-led team, Jesuit Heritage Week brings together distinguished faculty and special guests in events and activities focused on the work of the Jesuits around the world and here on the Hilltop. Programs focus on spirituality, social justice, the arts, education and include opportunities for meeting and becoming acquainted with individual Jesuits.  Each year, the students develop new ideas to join some perennial favorites such as Spike-a-Jesuit, the annual volleyball face-off between the students and Jesuits of Georgetown.
