John Carroll Weekend Returns in 2022!
Georgetown is heading to Nashville, Tennessee! After a year spent apart, what better place to reunite than in Music City, a metropolis thrumming with live performances, southern hospitality, and creative energy? Join the Georgetown community from March 31 to April 3, 2022, for a spirited weekend of cultural tours, intellectual programming, and cherished social events.
Alumni, university leaders, renowned faculty, and friends of the university will spend four days together, should public health conditions allow, experiencing country music, star-studded history, top-tier museums, and a playful culinary scene. Nashville takes public health guidelines seriously and is designated as a Safe Travels destination by the World Travel & Tourism Council.
With this special return, there are more reasons to celebrate! At John Carroll Weekend Nashville, we will recognize the 2020 and 2022 John Carroll and Patrick Healy awardees.  Join us from March 31 to April 3, 2022, to fete alumni and friends of the university who are doing incredible work, and to enjoy all the music, history, and culture Nashville has to offer.
