What's a Hoya? Many years ago, when all Georgetown students were required to study Greek and Latin, the University's teams were nicknamed "The Stonewalls." It is suggested that a student, using Greek and Latin terms, started the cheer "Hoya Saxa!", which translates into "What Rocks!" The name proved popular and the term "Hoyas" was eventually adopted for all Georgetown teams.

A passage is necessary if you are in the neighborhood.
A look inside an excellent institution and to see the college crowd in the daily routine is something to see---the leaders of tomorrow more »
Historic place and University. Is located in the same-name neighborhood which is also old and historic. In the yard inside it there are stairs, where Presidents of USA have made their speeches. Recommended place. Just walk around
Beautiful, beautiful university. I look forward to spending my summer there.
