CISL Junior Program students who are enrolled in the Georgetown program live on the beautiful campus of Georgetown University (in the same dorms that American college students live in during the year!). When students aren’t in class or exploring the gorgeous campus, they are usually in nearby Downtown Washington D.C. and visiting historic buildings and monuments. But life in Georgetown is much more than just visiting the impressive landmarks Washington D.C.. What is it really like in Georgetown? Read on to find out.

The architecture around the canals in Georgetown is beautiful!

2017 Sample Georgetown Activities Calendar

1. Explore the Potomac


The city is built on the banks of this river, and many choose to see the city from the water by booking a river cruise. You can also rent kayaks to explore the river on your own!

If you prefer to stay on dry land, you can walk along the riverfront and enjoy its shops and restaurants.

Check out Trip Advisor for more information about the activities on the river.


2. Eat a variety of foods!


Southern Italian? Seafood? French? American Steakhouse? Sushi? Sandwiches? Whatever you are in the mood for, you can find in Georgetown!
