Erica Slates chose to attend Georgetown for its academics. But she says the school misled her about its conservative policies towards contraception and sex education.
"Georgetown didn't give me the tools to make an informed decision about that," she says.
Slates is leading a group of students in a protest in front of the school's administrative building. They're demanding access to contraception on campus, and they also want Georgetown to formally recognize their abortion-rights group, Hoyas for Choice.
Slates says, at the very least, the school's recruiters should be more honest.
"Georgetown should say to prospective students, 'These are issues. The vast majority of other universities aren't like this. This is how we're different,'" says Slates.
Georgetown administrators say they won't recognize Hoyas for Choice because it goes against the school's "Catholic and Jesuit traditions."
