Katharine Glennon

  • Graduated: 2020
  • Field: Management/Entrepreneurship

Katharine Glennon, who graduated in 2020 with a BA in Economics and a BA in International Relations, is administrative support coordinator for the College of Business’s Seufferlein Sales Program. She enrolled at Chico State in 2015 and during her freshman year Katharine volunteered at a senior living home where she was matched with a “grandparent” who she visited twice weekly in a CAVE program. 

In 2018 Katharine studied Spanish language and literature and international economics at the Universidad del Pais Vasco in Bilbao, Spain. She was also a delegate to Poland for the Model United Nations class. “For months I had to prepare written papers and memorize speeches. I was a delegate for the country of Poland and I won an award for being an outstanding delegate during the conference,” according to her LinkedIn page.

Katharine helped support herself doing office work for Chico State’s Facilities Management and Services department where she assisted in “the internal office conversion from a paper record system to a more modern and secure system, with data now stored electronically, “according to her LinkedIn page. During her fifth year at the University she moved from office assistant to supplemental instructional leader for Associated Students in 2019. In her instructional role Katharine submitted weekly reports on her activities with students in economics courses and she made the transition into all virtual instruction when the Covid-19 crisis hit in March of 2020.”

After graduation Katharine moved into College of Business’s Seufferlein Sales Program where she is currently working. Katharine manages the office and its personnel as well as payroll and invoicing. 

“I loved studying economics at Chico State,” Katharine said in a recent email. “It was a great experience!”  (Last Updated 9/28/20)
