Meet Gary Gao - Undergraduate Peer Advisor
Meet Gary Gao - Undergraduate Peer Advisor
  • Major: Accounting
  • Year in School: Senior
  • Born: Shanghai, China

Why did you want to be a Peer Advisor?
 I enjoy helping students and create a support system for each other. Being a Peer Advisor gives me the opportunity to help other students and serve as a second opinion for advising.

What's your favorite thing about studying and working in the School of Business so far?
 My favorite thing about studying and working in the School of Business is that I get to see a lot of the same students on a daily basis. PSU is a big school, but it makes it feel much smaller when you see the same group of students in different classes.

Why should students seek express advising? What should they expect? How should they prepare?
 Express advising is great when you can’t schedule with a regular advisor in time. We are here to help with any advising questions you might have. Remember, there are no stupid questions!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
 In five years, I see myself becoming an experienced accountant in a public accounting firm, and being in a managerial role for a team of accountants.
