Here at Georgetown, there are lots of opportunities. So many, in fact, that it can be hard to know how to take advantage of all of them! As I think back on my undergrad experience with less than 100 days before my graduation, here are five things I wish I knew before coming to Georgetown:
1. Professors are here to help, both academically and professionally!
Across the board, my Georgetown professors have made themselves available to meet with students in office hours. Regardless of the number of students in a given class, professors want to get to know you, and they’re an incredible resource for academic questions and career advice.
I regularly talk with professors about my career aspirations, and in many instances, they’ve connected me with internship opportunities and helped me grow my professional network. Thanks to office hour conversations, I’ve been able to volunteer at National Geographic’s live events, and I interned for Conservation X Labs after my sophomore year.
