  • Distance : 4
  • Attraction : Starting point

Welcome to Georgetown, the nation’s oldest Catholic and Jesuit University. Today Georgetown is a progressive, diverse community committed to social justice with a holistic approach to education. This tour will help you get to know this beautiful campus nestled right here in the heart of Washington, DC. Before we begin, let me briefly explain how UC Places works. It uses your location to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Every time you reach a POI, I will automatically narrate that location. If you can see on the map that you're in the right spot but the audio isn't playing, give it a few seconds. Usually the gps will find you. If it doesn’t, you can always play the audio automatically, and if you wish to replay the audio for any POI, simply use the audio control buttons on the screen bottom. When you are ready, head in through the gates and meet me at the statue that is straight ahead of you.
