About the Club of Pittsburgh

The Georgetown Club of Pittsburgh seeks to be one of the most active alumni clubs in the country, with a dedicated board and more than 1,000 alumni living in the region. Whether you're a graduate, current student or parent, we're always happy to hear from another Western Pennsylvania Hoya. 

Many Georgetown alumni have made a home in the Pittsburgh area over the years, including the legendary Art Rooney, as well as many prominent CEOs, judges, state and local elected officials, attorneys, teachers, medical professionals, and others. Fun fact: The front gates of Healy Lawn were donated by a Pittsburgher!
