Students propose Leavey Esplanade for alternative Georgetown Day
Wednesday night at 10pm, “Saxa Silence Dogood” and “Cura P. Workinggroup”—ostensibly Georgetown students—created an event called “Georgetown Day Study Group on Leavey Esplanade.” Within the span of three hours, 1,000 had clicked “attending.”
Although the maximum capacity of the Leavey Esplanade remains unclear, it was probably not calculated to include a sixth of the student body—plus kegs and kiddie pools. Or kiddie pools filled with beer. But where there’s a will, there’s a way. If nothing else, Georgetown Day roamers have the will to study.
In any case, given the administration’s resolve to
kill all the fun hamper the Georgetown Day festivities, a thousand students and counting are in the market for an alternative to the nostalgic fun-fest fostered by inflatables on the lawn.
Submitted for your enjoyment, dear readers, are some highlights from the “Study Group” wall:
The event creators refer to themselves as “The Committee.”

And, last but not least, our beloved Derrik Sweeney (COL ’13) encourages the comparison to the Egyptian revolution:
