Celebrating Corp 50
On March 6, the Students of Georgetown Inc., commonly known as “The Corp,” will celebrate the 50th anniversary of its official incorporation in 1972.
To honor the milestone, more than 450 alumni of the student-run business returned to the Hilltop for a weekend of celebration and service, the largest reunion in The Corp’s history.
“We tried really intentionally to draw a direct link between our history and Georgetown’s history,” says Matt Davis (SFS’22), The Corp’s president and CEO. “It’s not just a celebration for Corp employees or Corp alumni — this is a celebration for all of Georgetown.”
The reunion has been several years in the making, spanning multiple student leadership terms and functions across The Corp’s management teams. True to The Corp’s ethos, the events were entirely planned and executed by undergraduate students.
“Students, from first-years to seniors, in The Corp have volunteered to help develop and execute Corp 50 events,” says Harper Thomas (SFS’22), chair of The Corp’s Board of Directors. “Additionally, we have been in regular contact with university officials over the past year on topics ranging from COVID-19 safety to library exhibits and event planning. It has truly been a team effort.”
