Dear Dr. Olson
We are writing to you to support The Hoya in its efforts to achieve independence from Georgetown University and retain its name
Georgetown University was founded in 1789 by John Carroll, and is the oldest Catholic and Jesuit institution of higher learning in the United States.
Founded in 1920, The Hoya is Georgetown\'s oldest, largest and leading newspaper which celebrated 85 years of reporting history in January 2005. President William J. Clinton (SFS \'68), Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia (CAS \'57), basketball superstar Patrick Ewing (CAS \'85) and NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue (CAS \'62) all read The Hoya while undergraduate students on the Georgetown hilltop.
Targeted at the 16,000 members of the Georgetown community, The Hoya is distributed every Tuesday and Friday throughout the main campus in Northwest D.C., the law center campus in downtown Washington, and in surrounding communities. Twice each week, the Georgetown community turns to The Hoya for comprehensive local and campus news, sports and entertainment reporting.
