Meet Peer Advisor Nicolette
Studying: Finance & Accounting
Internship: Accounting at ITG
Advice to underclassmen: Similarly to my favorite thing about the Carroll School, I would say to take advantage of your professors' and TAs' office hours. Freshman year my friends joked that I spent more time with my teachers than with them, because I would go to my teachers with any question or concern, big or small. I think this really helped me get acclimated to the college work load and lessened my fears of meeting and speaking to professors.
Drop-in hour this semester: Tuesdays from 1:00-2:00pm
Meet Peer Advisor Hannah
Studying: Accounting & International Studies; Studied abroad in Venice
Internship: Management Consulting at PwC
Advice for underclassmen: Get out of your comfort zone. Try a case competition, take a class or join a club outside of the Carroll School, or get to know a professor or classmate better. You never know what could spark a new interest for you if you don’t try new things.
Drop-in hour this semester: Mondays from 2:30-3:30pm
Meet Peer Advisor Meghan
Studying: Accounting & Educational Leadership
Internship: Deloitte Audit
Advice for underclassmen: Be open to taking classes in different schools! At one point in my academic career, I was enrolled in three different schools - A&S for studio art, Carroll School for accounting, and Lynch for Higher Education. Indecisiveness or curiosity? You decide. But know that it is totally okay to not know what you want to do and to seek out help from professors and advisors as you go through your discernment. A truly inspiring business professor took me under his wing and gave me the courage to pursue a field outside of business, so I encourage you to visit your professors' office hours!
Drop-in hour this semester: Thursdays from 1:00-2:00pm
