Katie Waller, Senior of the Week

One of this week’s featured seniors is… Katie Waller!
Katie joined SAA during her freshman year. As a junior she took on more leadership roles, chairing the the Alumni Relations committee and planning the first Connecting Huskies to Huskies Networking Night. Katie has also chaired a few 5 Under 25 panels. As a freshman Katie was invited to attend District 1 Conference at UMass Amherst, where she was crowned “Queen of the Jungle.” She also attended D1 Conference in 2012 at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, where she and other members were inspired to create a big networking night after seeing another school present a similar program.

Thank you for your enthusiasm, smiles, and laughs. We will miss you!

Senior of the Week Katie Waller

Age: 21, but almost 22!

Hometown: Well, I grew up in Albuquerque, New Mexico but moved to Glenwood Springs, Colorado in 4th grade so both places?

Major: International Affairs with minors in Political Science and Middle Eastern Studies/Arabic

Co-ops: I did my first co-op at two places, both in Washington DC.

Then for my second co-op I did marketing and social media for WS Development.

When you were five, what did you want to be when you grew up?
An actress/Jane Goodall. I was weirdly obsessed with Jane Goodall.

What is your favorite movie?
Saved! I have a weird sense of humor so I think this movie is perfect and I can quote the entire thing. 2nd place is Mean Girls.

Boloco or Qdoba?

Which residence hall is your favorite?

How has SAA contributed to your Northeastern experience?
I have made some amazing friends through SAA!

How do you hope to give back to the Northeastern community as an alumna?
When (if?) I get a real job, I would love to hire coop students!!
