Georgetown University: Classy Done Right

As I'm writing this post I can't help but to feel exhausted. This weekend wore me out completely and I'm really not looking forward to going back to class tomorrow. Oh well, on a positive note this weekend was so much fun! I was able to explore in all of my favorite places and do a little retail therapy.

Friday, my boyfriend and I went to Georgetown (like I mentioned in the previous post) and visited Georgetown University. Everything about the University was just amazing. The architecture was gorgeous, the students were dressed super classy, and the campus was just a short walk away from the shops. Needless to say, I felt like I was cheating on my own school by taking a visit!

I adored this stone building...it was HUGE! Most of the following pictures are taken here:
We came upon this AMAZING classroom. What I would love to have class here! The walls were surrounded by gorgeous woodworking and even had a sweet old time chalkboard!
 For all of your readers out there, one thing you should know about me is that I absolutely adore architecture. There's just something so refined and elegant about this picture. Oh goodness I just can't stop gushing about this school...beautiful!
Can you just imagine yourself wearing your classy preppy outfit, carrying your books on your way to class? Absolutely beautiful.
For many of you that don't know, Georgetown University is actually a private Catholic University. I had no idea until a few months ago. However if you ever visit the campus, there are religious themed pictures everywhere.
Adorable little chapel located in a small courtyard. I can just imagine myself going to mass here!
Gorgeous view from one of the buildings...so close to D.C.!
Another view of their amazing architecture!

I could probably write pages and pages on how beautiful Georgetown University is. It truly is such an interesting campus architecture wise and just so phenomenally classy in general. If any of you lovely readers are looking at colleges, I hope you take a look at Georgetown. It is truly one of a kind.

Have you ever made a visit to Georgetown University?

It is gorgeous! One of the things that made me choose my school was the gorgeous architecture! It's Gothic style, and the dining hall looks like Hogwarts! It's beautiful!

I've never been, but it looks absolutely gorgeous! I can definitely see why people would pay a little (or A LOT) more to go to that school! I mean, it's all about how pretty it is, right? (c; Love the cute blog...so glad you visited mine so I could find it!
