A Testimonial

Camille Bustos Bismonte speaks into a microphone while testifying

“When I first came to Georgetown and heard about the Jesuit traditions, I didn’t realize how important this is — to understand and care for the whole person. It is a message that transcends any barrier.”

Student Voices

“A lot of my research has been shaped by my own experiences of being an immigrant. I was born in India, but my family moved to Singapore when I was two, which made me very aware of how language shapes society and how it has shaped me.”

“I was in the GSP office every day. When I was with that community, it felt like Georgetown was built for us. It’s the most robust support system that I’ve seen specially designed for first-generation and low-income students.”

“I oftentimes forget I even transferred to Georgetown, and I think I’ve been here all along because it feels that way. All the resources you have to take advantage of at Georgetown are really helpful in making transfer students feel like they belong.”
