Bagels with the Deans

Ad Astra – Undergraduate McDonough Retreats
Ad Astra: In Pursuit of our Purpose is the signature, overnight retreat experience for undergraduate students of the McDonough School of Business. Hosted by the Undergraduate Program Office and made possible through the generous contributions of alumni, Ad Astra encourages students to find their own north star with the guiding philosophy that a life steeped in meaning yields profound value to those who seek it.
The Peer Ambassador and Leadership Program utilizes the experiences, knowledge, and leadership skills of selected upper-class students to help new students transition to Georgetown McDonough as undergraduates. Peer Ambassadors meet with prospective students, help new students with registration, and act as a point of contact for any and all questions a new student may have.
McDonough Initiative on Student Formation & Well-Being
Well-being encompasses all aspects of student experience. Georgetown McDonough seeks to engage and encourage spiritual, physical, and intellectual growth across our students entire experience of wellness. Our community of care provides opportunities to foster formational development through establishing communities and empowering meaningful relationships. In short, our approach to well-being lives among all the pieces of who our students are, their identities and histories, hopes and dreams, and professional futures.
There are many opportunities for McDonough students to connect with alumni who have made great strides within their professional fields. Alumni programming for McDonough undergraduates includes Host a Hoya, a one day job shadow opportunity during school break. Alumni mentoring is also facilitated through HoyaGateway, Georgetown’s internal portal that connects students with alumni all over the globe. Our alumni also host students in connection with the McDonough Career Development Center for DC area “Fridays in the Field” and national “Treks” to their workplaces, introducing students to fellow Hoyas at their companies for informal networking.
