Georgetown University was founded in 1789. It’s the nation’s oldest Catholic Jesuit institution of higher education. The university began under the direction of John Carroll who wanted to establish a Catholic college within the Maryland colony, despite religious persecution. The university flourished after the Civil War under the guidance of Patrick Francis Healy. Described as the “second founder” of the university, Healy built a foundation that propelled the university into the 20th century and set the framework for the world-renowned university that was to follow. It’s now known that Healy was a slave at birth. He was the offspring of a white plantation owner and his biracial slave who later became the father’s common-law wife. The university’s main campus and medical college are located in the Georgetown neighborhood of the District. The law center is located on Capitol Hill.

Georgetown is one of the most difficult universities in which to gain admission. The institution accepts less than 17 percent of applicants. It’s the alma mater of President Bill Clinton and Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia as well as foreign dignitaries, business leaders and celebrities.

The university colors are blue and grey. These are the same colors worn by Union and Confederate soldiers. Originally selected by the university crew team in 1876, they were later adopted school-wide to show the peaceful union of the reunited nation.
