A big congratulations to Georgetown University, the oldest Catholic (and Jesuit) university in the country, which today celebrates its 225th Anniversary. As the school's website noted:
On this day in 1789 the university's founder, Bishop John Carroll, obtained the first deed for the land on which Georgetown, the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher education in the country, was built. Carroll secured the deed to about 60 acres of land overlooking the Potomac River.Advertisement
The school also announced today that six congressional members, five of whom are Georgetown alumni, honored the University in the Congressional Record to mark the anniversary.
I know a number of people who have attended Georgetown, and all attest to its excellence. I'm not sure I'm allowed to say this as a non-alumnus (and my apologies if I am not), but as a fellow Jesuit university graduate, I offer a "Hoya Saxa" in honor of the day.
