Hoya Gateway for student and alumni launched the Georgetown Military Network (GMN) group to connect the Georgetown student and alumni military-connected community for mentoring, transition and career development opportunities.

The GMN has just launched a “Group” on the platform, which is an exclusive section of the system allows you to easily find professionals, engage in relevant conversations on the Discussion Board, and find important resources related to your interests.

The University is expanding the Hoya Gateway platform to stimulate engagement across the Georgetown military network and hope that you will join the group to connect with military-connected alumni and students. The goal is to create a responsive, engaged community to better serve all Military Hoyas.
