WELCOME TO GEORGETOWN!
Hi! My name is Dalric Fields and I am McDonough Peer Ambassador captain.
Hometown: Monroe, Louisiana
Extracurricular Activities: Peer Ambassador and Leadership Program, Financial Management Association
Interesting Fact About Me: When I was in high school I transitioned from an Offensive Lineman to a Free Safety on the football team.
What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose the McDonough School of Business because of the world renowned faculty. It was important to me not only to get a degree in business, but to learn about different experiences the professors have had in their lifetime. In addition, during my GAAP weekend, I met genuine students and faculty.
What are the best things about being a Hoya? The best thing about being a hoya is that “Hoyas help Hoyas.” Whenever students are having a rough day or did not do as well on an exam there is always another hoya there for encouragement.
Why do you love D.C.? I love D.C. because anyone in the world would be able to find their niche here. I casually walk down to the waterfront and here a variety of languages; it amazes me every time. The events that are held in D.C. such as the Veteran’s Day concert truly make me appreciate that I go to school in such a phenomenal city.
Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? During my first year I took a business seminar in strategy. The seminar allowed students to voice their opinions in regard to the best strategies for certain time periods. The class was actually was my alternate, and I am thankful that I did not get into my first choice for once.
What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?
The best advice is to just be yourself because at Georgetown there is a place for everyone. In all honesty you most likely will not like every club that you sign up for or get into. As your first year goes on you will figure out the clubs you are truly passionate about.
