The Military Student Experience

Our military-connected community – comprising women and men who serve our country in the armed forces as well as the spouses and children of service members – is an important part of the broader the campus community.

Georgetown Faces

“The community at Georgetown was both a challenging and safe space to learn, practice critical analysis skills, develop presentation and communication abilities and to explore what kind of impact I might want to make after graduation.”

“As a military service member, I have realized that we shouldn’t hesitate to share our military experiences. I learn a tremendous amount from my classmates in other industries and have found they learn much from my own experience as an infantry officer in the U.S. Army.”

“A sense of belonging is a basic human need, and the Georgetown community has done a great job making me feel welcome while integrating me into the broader community.”
