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.

Georgetown University Reviews
We stopped by here on our pedicab tour and loved the building. It has character to burn and left you just wanting to watch it all day. more »
位於華府附近的知名學府，培育了相當多的華府政治菁英。學校校園寬闊，隨時都有學生在草地上閲讀，漫步在校園中非常自在悠閒。 more »A well-known university near the capital has nurtured a great nurture of the political elite of the capital. School school, all the time there are students in the grass, strolling in the school park is very comfortable.
It is filled with rich moments of US history and future of political education. Georgetown is most unique in terms of culture-wise; most of the students are multi lingual and its community appreciates and respects non-American cultures. This university constantly forces students to interact with each other to broaden their point of views and make them more colorful in terms of personality. Definitely a place to consider for your higher education experience
During my first visit for my daughter, I was surprised with it’s importance. The campus was overall beautiful, so much history in the architecture. Very friendly students and staff that were willing to help with directions. Definitely would encourage my kids to apply. 👍👍
