Georgetown University is home to over 250 student organizations that contribute immensely to shaping campus life and culture. Student organizations provide events and activities central to the student experience, while also allowing opportunities for students to develop a variety of valuable leadership skills. The wide range of student organizations ensures that each student can find at least one club that supports an identity, culture, professional or academic discipline, recreational activity, or general interest that matches theirs.
Student organizations are given Access to Benefits through seven Advisory Boards. Each Advisory Board has a unique structure and processes that work to support the programming efforts of their member organizations. All recognized student organizations are represented on Hoyalink, but here's a glimpse a few of our most popular organizations listed below.
GEORGETOWN PROGRAM BOARD (GPB)
The Georgetown Program Board is a student-directed, campus-wide group dedicated to providing low-cost, high quality entertainment to the undergraduate campus community. Events reflect the diversity of interests, backgrounds, and people at Georgetown.
The Georgetown University Lecture Fund strives to bring speakers to Georgetown's campus to enlighten, educate and, occasionally, entertain. The Lecture Fund arranges forums on a variety of topics, ranging from nuclear energy alternatives to urban economics. Along with these discussions, the Lecture Fund hosts an active calendar of individual speakers addressing a wide range of subjects and disciplines.
GEORGETOWN OPPORTUNITIES FOR LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT (GOLD)
GOLD seeks to inspire the next generation of student leaders to explore their leadership potential through interactive programs that highlight the importance of goal setting, motivation, teamwork, risk-taking, and diversity. Drawing on the Jesuit values of cura personalis and servant leadership, we believe in cultivating personal leadership styles that will prepare students to effectively employ their unique strengths when engaging on campus, in the community, and around the world.
SENIOR CLASS COMMITTEE (SCC)
The Senior Class Committee is led by a board of eight students and its committee is comprised of over 50 Seniors. The goal of the committee is to produce a memorable last year at Georgetown by exposing Seniors to culturally diverse experiences, charitable services, and transitional activities geared towards post collegiate life.
STUDENT VETERANS ASSOCIATION (GUSVA)
The mission of the GUSVA is to advocate on behalf of all veterans, military dependent family members, active duty service members, and reserve/national guard members currently enrolled at Georgetown University to succeed in higher education and beyond.
