Being a member of the GU Eating Society grants you access to our events, particularly membership-only restaurant outings and social events. We also host events (like charity happy hours) that are open to all Georgetown students. Our application is a way for us to get to know how you would fit into GUES. We're looking for a genuine passion for learning about culture and cuisine--like us!
The reasoning behind our application process comes down to budget: we want to open the D.C. restaurant scene to everyone, regardless of socioeconomic status. We use our budget to subsidize members' meals partially or fully, based on need. Because our budget is small and member-funded, we have to limit our membership to ensure that every member has access to those subsidies. Again, we do not want the organization to seem exclusive – GUES was created by two people who were tired of the exclusivity of Georgetown clubs and wanted to share their passion for food with others.
When filling out the application, please take it seriously. Pro tip: Just be yourself, that's the best version of you.
