Welcome back to the program. Thanks for staying with us.
Michigan Week – As anyone reading this should now, this week is the last football game of the year for the Buckeyes, which means we are playing that school up North (Michigan). There is a famous quote about Woody Hayes that sums up this rivalry:
When asked why he went for two despite a 36-point lead against Michigan, Hayes quipped, “Because I couldn’t go for three.”
Fisher Follies – Fisher Follies is one of the better known student organizations here at Fisher and I think is almost part of our culture. Earlier this week in Organizational Behavior, we learned about Daniel Goleman’s emotional intelligence model for leaders. In this model, one of the emotional intelligence parameters is self-awareness, and one observable behavior of self-awareness is self-deprecating humor. In my humble opinion, Fisher Follies is a great example of self-deprecating humor. Some of the videos have elements of “inside jokes” in them; however the following should be hilarious for all:
Fisher Winter Games – This Friday, Fisher students, faculty, and staff will come together for one of the greatest spectacles in collegiate graduate student sporting events – the Fisher Winter Games. Student-Athletes will compete in volleyball, dodge ball, and basketball, but the headlining event is the faculty vs. student dodge ball game. Featured in this event are Dr. Inks from Unprofessional Minds and Dr. Campbell, who has a cameo appearance in that film (“I will crush you”). Let the battle begin!
