One of our Hilltop traditions is a fall semester staple- ensuring our students are loaded up with classic and vintage Georgetown shirts! We invite our Hoyas to stop by Healy and Copley lawns, drop off their old college-brand T-shirts and take home a Georgetown one. We want all students to come together for an opportunity to represent their new home with spirited threads- as well as socialize, make connections and create memories together. (Plus, the event promotes sustainable consumption!)
