Two new student blogs debuted on Fisher's Web site, including one that kicks off the 2009-10 academic year, "My Fisher Grad Life." Over the summer, nine undergraduate students working on internships from around the world reported back on their experiences on the “My Fisher Internship” blog.

Among the undergraduate bloggers were Allie Feinstein, who worked as an intern for Marvel Entertainment and on the company's latest film, "Thor."

"Officially, my favorite memory working on Thor took place the first week when I was with the art and special effects departments," Feinstein wrote. "It was my first look into the technology that makes these big budget effects movies come to life and the incredible people that put it all together. Unofficially, my favorite moment was meeting (actor) Chris Hemsworth."
