One of the best things about being a Hoya is that there is a community for everyone. No matter what your passions are, there are almost certainly people who share those same passions.
Why do you love D.C.?
I love D.C because of how the great variety of activities here. For any interest, someone has, whether it’s sporting events, theater, museums, or restaurants, there’s no shortage of sites to see or experiences to be had. After 3 years I’m still exploring DC and seeing everything the city has to offer.
Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?

Break the bubble! The campus is amazing but DC has so much more to offer.
