Connect & Socialize

The Georgetown University Association of Retired Faculty and Staff (GUARFS) provides a number of opportunities throughout the year for retirees to connect with each other, enjoy cultural events and socialize. These include:

  • guided tours of museums, galleries and other sites of cultural and historical interest in the area; and
  • luncheon meetings with featured speakers from the Georgetown community.

Currently all events are virtual. We look forward to the time when we can all connect in person.
