“When I first started at Georgetown, one of the Jesuit professors came to speak to my class. Although I’m embarrassed to say I can’t remember the majority of what he shared with us, I have never forgotten one comment he made just before we finished our discussion. He said pertaining to Georgetown’s Jesuit identity that, ‘Here at Georgetown, we don’t teach you what to think, we just teach you how to think.’ To me, this so perfectly sums up my education here on the Hilltop, and it makes me so grateful to be here doing exactly what I am doing right now.”
