Katie Glaser

Hi! My name is Katie Glaser and I am a McDonough peer ambassador!

Hometown: Greensboro, North Carolina

Class: 2020 

Major: Undeclared

Extracurricular Activities: Common $ense- planning financial literacy workshops, Hoya Taxa - tax prep program, Asian American Student Association (AASA), and McDonough Peer Ambassador

Interesting Fact About Me: Before I moved to North Carolina, I used to live in Hong Kong and in Switzerland!

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I came here because Georgetown is the perfect blend of a college campus, a neighborhood, and an international city. There is so much to do here on and off campus. I wanted options coming into college, and Georgetown has plenty of them.

What are the best things about being a Hoya? The people I have met are simply amazing! My friends are from all over the world and we have so many stories to tell and cultures to share.

Why do you love D.C.? It’s like a big town! I wanted to be in a city that wasn’t too overwhelming, and D.C. is perfect for that. It always has something going on downtown or in the neighborhood.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? I did not think I would like quantitative classes as much as I do until I started taking classes in the business school, like Accounting.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? Don’t feel like you have to know your major or find your dream job right now. Save your first year for exploring different courses/hobbies to see what you really like!
