Christa GiordanoWELCOME TO GEORGETOWN!

Hi! My name is Lindsay Gong and I am a McDonough peer ambassador.

Hometown: Potomac, MD

Class: 2019

Major: Finance & Accounting

Interesting Fact About Me: I traveled to 5 of the 7 continents in 2016!

What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business? I chose the McDonough School of Business for its unparalleled quality of academics, welcoming students, as well as the access to well-connected alumni who are always willing to help fellow Hoyas.

What are the best things about being a Hoya? One of the things I love the most about being a Hoya is how close-knit the community is. Regardless of whether you are a current student or an alumnus, just the simple fact that you are a Hoya automatically guarantees you an established and welcoming community no matter where in the world you are.

Why do you love D.C.? As a D.C. native, I can’t emphasize enough the dynamic environment you will experience here in the nation’s capital. Despite having lived in this area for my whole life, I still haven’t run out of places to explore, foods to taste, and activities to try.

Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment? After winning a corporate case competition using skills I had learned in my Management Science class, I realized just how applicable the skills we learn in the classroom really are.

What is your advice to incoming Hoyas? Do not stress out too much about starting college! I assure you that you will have plenty of resources (including me!) to guide you through this process.
