The HoyaTalk Boards
The growth in popularity of the original HoyaTalk Board (which dates to late 1996) has now grown to encompass eight unique message boards:
A password is not required to view any of the boards; however, to post a message on some boards you need to sign up for a password. A confirmation will be e-mailed to you, usually within 12-24 hours. (Hotmail and Yahoo accounts are discouraged because passwords don't always arrive back to these e-boxes. As such, please submit a non-anonymous account.)
Please note that the system assigns a unique password upon registration that is different from the one you used before. You have the option of changing the password back upon your first login.
Your one HoyaTalk password provides you access to all boards.Basic Rules

And, while you all should know this already, a friendly reminder from the NCAA:
"It is against NCAA regulations for a representative of an institution's athletic interests to have any contact with a prospective student-athlete. Such prohibitions include telephone calls, letters, e-mails and in-person contact. Any violation of these regulations causes potentially severe penalties, such as the prospect being prohibited to participate in athletics at that institution and additional penalties against the institution (i.e., loss of scholarships, television ban, etc.).
"Any individual who is an alumnus, benefactor, season ticket holder or simply a fan of the athletics programs at Georgetown University is considered a representative of their athletics interests and is subject to these restrictions.
"The only individuals who are permitted to contact prospective student-athletes about their interest in attending Georgetown University are certified institutional staff members, such as coaches, athletics administrators or other University officials.
"Please note that according to NCAA regulations an individual is considered a prospective student-athlete until the day they enroll at the institution or report for the first day of preseason practice. Therefore, the above restrictions are applicable until that time. In addition, if a prospective student-athlete signs a Letter-of-Intent to attend Georgetown University, an institution's athletics representative is not permitted to call that prospect and congratulate them on their signing - this is also a violation and could jeopardize the prospect's eligibility."
NOTE: By submitting an e-mail and/or participating on the boards, I agree to the rules of this page (including the NCAA advisory above) and to abide by same. I understand that abuse of these rules will subject me to any or all of the sanctions indicated above, including the loss of password privileges on the board. All posts submitted are at the sole discretion of the board moderators for approval and may be deleted (as cited above) with or without prior notice.
