Frequently Asked Questions
What is the John Carroll Weekend?
Each year, alumni, faculty, students, staff, family members and friends of the Georgetown community travel to a different city to celebrate the university and the leaders it creates. The weekend is packed with social, cultural and intellectual events that give participants the chance to engage with one another and with Georgetown's outstanding faculty and university leaders. John Carroll Weekend includes tours, lectures and parties that offer an exclusive and exciting experience of the host city.
What are the John Carroll and Patrick Healy Awards?
Five alumni and one friend of the university are honored each year for lifetime achievement and service to Georgetown. The awards are presented at a special banquet during John Carroll Weekend. The John Carroll Award was established in 1951 to honor alumni whose achievements exemplify the ideals and traditions of the university and its founder, Archbishop John Carroll. The Patrick Healy Award is named in honor of Patrick Healy, the first African-American president of a major university, who transformed Georgetown from a small college into a modern university. The award honors a person who is not an alumnus or alumna, but who carries on Healy's tradition of service to Georgetown.
How is the location of the host city determined?
Georgetown alumni clubs from around the world compete to have their city host John Carroll Weekend. The clubs present their city to a selection committee of the Georgetown University Alumni Association Board of Governors and the final decision is approved by the full board. The selection process begins two years before the potential host date.
Who may attend John Carroll Weekend 2012 in Chicago?
Georgetown alumni, parents, family members, friends, students and faculty, as well as industry and political leaders, are invited to participate in John Carroll Weekend 2012, April 26-29.
