Hi! My name is Nick Bailey and I am a McDonough Peer Ambassador. Hometown: Westbury, NY Class: 2017 Major:International Business – Regional Studies & Marketing
President of Georgetown Program Executive Board, Operations Assistant in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, The Hoya
Interesting Fact About Me:
My first time in Europe was in Spring 2016 when I studied in Barcelona for the semester. I visited 15 cities while I was abroad!
What made you choose Georgetown's McDonough School of Business?
At McDonough, I knew I could balance my business courses and my liberal arts core classes my first year. I also think McDonough aptly prepares its undergraduate students for life in the real world, through the coursework, group projects, and little life lessons some professors teach us.
What are the best things about being a Hoya?
The best things about being a Hoya are being able to enjoy our beautiful campus when the weather is nice, getting a lot of free Georgetown apparel and wearing it proudly, Jack the Bulldog, and making the trip to the Verizon Center to cheer on the basketball team.
Why do you love D.C.?
I love DC because it’s a city where you can see the changes in all of the seasons, go on a early morning run to the monuments, spend a weekend at the Smithsonian, and eat the best cupcakes at Baked and Wired. Also, what other school can say that the Secretary of State lives two blocks from their front gates?
Share a defining and/or transformative classroom/educational moment?
Before my International Business class during the fall of my junior year, I didn’t know much about international trade or finance. Through engaging case studies and group projects, Professor Rivoli made the class fun and helped me build my understanding for future major classes.
What is your advice to incoming Hoyas?
Take advantage of all the opportunities at Georgetown and in DC, whether that’s joining a new club, trying a new sport, taking a class that interests you, or making trips to the museums downtown. There are so many chances for you to find new interests and meet new people here on the Hilltop.
