Georgetown University held its annual open house for neighbors Dec. 9 at Riggs Library, decorated for Christmastime. University president John DeGioia welcomed the happy crowd along with council member Jack Evans, who spoke of how well Washington, D.C., was doing. DeGioia talked about Georgetown's neighborhood partnership, the university's new downtown campus near Mount Vernon Square as well as the recent event for D.C. school principals at Georgetown and the upcoming Martin Luther King, Jr., celebration at the Kennedy Center in January. He also noted that the party-goers were in the Healy Building, which was designed by Smithmeyer & Pelz, the same architects who did the Jefferson Building of the Library of Congress, and said he saw the two landmark buildings as bookends of education for D.C. The hostess for the party was the university's Lauralyn Lee, associate vice president for community engagement and strategic initiatives.
