Healy Hall, Georgetown University


Note the distinctive clock tower - Wikipedia provides an interesting bit of trivia:
A tradition at Georgetown involves students stealing the clock hands from the tower and mailing them to the Vatican, where they are supposed to be simply stamped 'return to sender' and returned to the university. One such incident caused significant damage to the clock mechanism, however, and security has been increased as a result in recent years, decreasing the incidence of the theft.
More Healy Hall lore can be found at The Hoya, GU's campus paper archives.
