Information Session: Yes - An admissions officer gave us a presentation with a slide show. It was very informative, about all one could expect from a session. Georgetown isn't on the Common App! :(
Campus Tour: Yes - Very nice campus set in Georgetown, a wonderful offset to Washington D.C. Our two tour guides were very intelligent and informative about campus life, things to do on and off campus, etc.

Campus Visit Notes for Georgetown University
Georgetown is a nice, intelligent campus. Of the schools I've visited its my favorite. If you want the benefits of a big, international city while still having that classical college feel with green quads, Georgetown is a place to consider. We had some weird Swiss people in our tour guide group who asked some stupid questions, but I suppose this is a testament to Georgetown's diverse and international flavor. One asked "do you have a vet school?" I was like well maybe it would have been a good thing to look up before you flew from Switzerland to the U.S. Then, the Swiss kids started making out towards the end of the tour. Awkward! (The girl was very attractive though.)
Hotel/Lodging Recommendations or Comments:
We stayed at a courtyard in downtown D.C. It was about a twenty minute walk to Georgetown.
Dining/Restaurant Recommendations or Comments:
We went to Filomena's in central Georgetown after the visit. Great Italian food!
Other Comments (Transportation, local attractions, parking, etc.):
There is no metro stop at Georgetown, so the only way to get into the city is a bus or walking, but it is a nice walk, so no real problems there.
