Notebook is a Columbia News series that highlights just some of the many fascinating students who study at our University. 

Don’t leave Abbey Hsu open! The senior star of Columbia Women’s Basketball recently set an Ivy League record for most 3-pointers. Now, she is also closing in on Columbia’s all-time scoring record (1,973 points). As this article published, Hsu had 1,962 points and was poised to break the Columbia record in an away game against Dartmouth.  

When Hsu is not on the basketball court, you can find her studying or riding a Citi Bike downtown to make the most of all that New York offers.

When are you graduating, and what is your major?

I am graduating in May of 2024, and my major is economics. 

What drew you to economics?

I chose economics because I was always fascinated by how our markets work, and wanted to understand it more on a micro level. I also feel that a degree in economics can be used in so many ways.
