The typical Hoya finds a vast array of clubs and organizations on campus to fit his or her interests, whether they lay at the intersection of international affairs and art, somewhere between sports, service, and the economy, or on another topic entirely.
Over 300 organizations currently operate on campus, from those with over 1,000 members to others with only 10. Cultures and regions throughout the world are represented through clubs like GU PorColombia, African Society of Georgetown, and the GU European Club.

Take a look at a few favorites from the SFS students.
SFS Academic Council
The SFSAC is the elected representative organization of the SFS undergraduate population. As advocates for the SFS student body, the SFSAC collaborates with the Dean’s Office, the GU Student Association, and the other academic councils to address academic concerns, space issues, and other initiatives developed to enhance the undergraduate experience. Additionally, the SFSAC enjoys membership on the SFS Curriculum Committee and the Georgetown University Inter-School Academic Council.
The committees of the SFSAC include Special Events, Communications, Development and Fundraising, Diplomatic Ball Planning, and Opportunities. Through these committees, the SFSAC sponsors several events throughout the academic year, including the Diplomatic Ball, Trick or Treat on Embassy Row, and the Student Faculty Banquet.

International Relations Club
The International Relations Club is the hub for all student-based international relations activity on campus. It is the main forum for Georgetown undergraduates to build upon their foreign affairs education outside of the classroom. There is a place for everyone in the IRC, regardless of what you formally study at Georgetown. Each year, we host a myriad of speaking, cultural, social, and philanthropic events. We are also home to the Georgetown Model United Nations traveling team, one of the country and world’s most decorated collegiate Model United Nations programs.
The Caravel is the only on-campus publication that focuses on reporting and analyzing international news, providing a unique platform for students interested in international affairs to be published regularly. The Caravel offers a distinct experience to students who want to learn more about journalism. As a newly established publication, the Caravel is growing its staff, and there are many opportunities for you to make an impact!
Working for the Caravel promises a demanding but rewarding experience – providing an education on international affairs, and hands-on experience in developing a new publication.
GU Women in Leadership
GU Women in Leadership welcomes undergraduate women of all majors and grade levels to join our organization. We believe the unique dynamic and mission of our organization fosters growth and learning experiences no matter the major or age. As a student organization, GU Women in Leadership (GUWIL) aims to build a network of strong Georgetown women and provide career-oriented guidance for its members through the following programs:
- Monthly Roundtable Discussions
- Guest Speakers
Georgetown University Student Association
We are the Georgetown University Student Association, and since 1984 our mission has been to serve students on the Hilltop as they pursue theirs. We’re recognized as the official voice of students to the university administration and the greater community, and we take that responsibility seriously.
We believe that students have a right and a responsibility to play a role in the governance of Georgetown. To this end, we are a democratic student government that works to resolve common student problems, advocate for the inclusion of students in university processes, and make student life at Georgetown the best it can be.
GUSA is led by the Executive, which consists of a president, a vice president, and about 40 cabinet and staff members. The Senate is the legislative branch, powered by 28 senators and a handful of staff. Many other students are involved with GUSA as members of various committees, working groups, and commissions.
