"Coming from a small Jewish day school in Denver, adjusting to life at Georgetown freshman year was a serious change of pace. However, I quickly found really great communities here, both within Jewish life and student theater, that made the transition much easier. While balancing classes and extracurriculars with Jewish holidays and ritual observance was a much more serious undertaking than I'd anticipated, having professors and peers who were understanding and accommodating of my tradition made it possible, and for that I will be eternally grateful to the Georgetown community. That spirit of respect and genuine interest in a broad spectrum of religious traditions is one of the things that initially led me to apply to Georgetown, after hearing it discussed at a college information panel junior year of high school, and it has been one of my favorite parts of my time here. From discussing the significance of Jewish holidays with my proseminar professor during her office hours, to participating in interfaith dialogues and acts of solidarity with the campus rabbi and imam, to attending various religious services with the diverse array of friends I have here on campus, I can't imagine any other school where I would have gained such a deep appreciation for the rich array of religious traditions represented on this campus."
