"As a" and "Being" have the same meaning in this context.

As a Georgetown student...

Being a Georgetown student...

If you wanted to be continuous, you could amend this to "While being a"

More importantly, while being a Georgetown student...

Capitalization of George and Town implies they are two separate words. If you are referring to the University located in DC then it is Georgetown.

More importantly, as being a Georgetown student . . .

should read:

More importantly, being a Georgetown student . . .

An alternative way of saying this is:

More importantly, as a Georgetown student . . .

Don't try to combine both structures! :-)
