Although school was not in session on Monday, the Astronomy Club took time to visit campus together to view the Mercury Transit. They also ate brunch and listened to a curated soundtrack (including, of course, “Here Comes the Sun,” by the Beatles).
The best way to get to know us is to visit our campus—and we'd love to get to know you better, too! There are lots of opportunities to explore our beautiful, welcoming campus in the heart of Georgetown.

At the end of the day, students will interview with an admissions officer.
Registration opens late August each year. Discover more about being a Cub for a Day!
