Georgetown College students are prepared to succeed. Our graduates are doing good and meaningful work all across the world. The success stories below are exemplary of the caliber of graduates that Georgetown College produces.


GC Alumnus Dr. Keith Jerome, ‘Crazy’ Enough to Attack HIV-AIDS

Dr. Keith Jerome, Class of ‘85 – who’s doing some of the most significant research on HIV/AIDS in the world – was featured in the Summer/Fall 2011 issue of Insights (GC’s alumni magazine). In April 2012, the Seattle-based research scientist returned to his alma mater to deliver the Hatfield Lecture as well as meet and inspire Georgetown College science majors to succeed.

In September 2012, Dr. Jerome happily updated us that he had been promoted to full professor at the University of Washington (where he heads the Virology Division) and that he continues to find balance in his life by passionately playing in an amateur baseball league. He also encourages science majors and prospective GC students to follow his research team’s progress at www.defeathiv.org.
