Ever tried to find cheap movies in Columbus? I recommend two to you die-hard movie fans~
1) The first one is Cinemark Theater, which is located at a shopping mall at 2570 Bethel Road. I went there to see the extraordinary “The Smurfs.” It tells a story where the evil wizard Gargamel chases the tiny blue Smurfs out of their village. Unexpectedly, they tumble from their magical world into New York City. It was really an amazing experience of watching a 3D animation picture with the special 3D glasses. And we could even bring those glasses home! The ticket is priced at around one dollar and there are usually recent released movies (but not the “most recent”). However, for the price, I think this Cinemark Theatre is definitely worth checking out.
2) Another wonderful cheap movie theater is at Easton Town Center. Though it’s not one dollar, it still cheaper than most other theaters, and it has the newest movies. I saw the film “Moneyball” starring Brad Pitt in that cinema, which tells the story of Oakland A’s general manager Billy Beane’s successful attempt to put together a baseball club on a budget by employing computer-generated analysis to draft his players.
How is that? Spending one dollar on a movie!? Terrific! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s take a well deserved break from classes and see one dollar movies~
I’d like to talk about my favorite professor in the SMF program this term, Professor Pinteris. I enjoy his classes so much and I think he is a really scholarly mentor as well as helpful friend. His teaching style embodies his ideology of incorporating teaching into action.
As a conscientious and dedicated teacher, Professor Pinteris has always been generous with his time and energy in exchanging ideas with students. When it comes to his office hour on Tuesday or lunch session on Thursday, there are always many students speaking with him. His patient persuasion and education are a testimony to my horizons, learning, growth, and also benefit from more accumulated financial knowledge and experience. I love the way he explains problems and all of those wonderful stories!
Professor Pinteris always has each student’s individual growth at heart. At the beginning of the term, we all feel it is quite difficult to choose his/her own major specialization from Corporate Finance, Investment Management, Real Estate and Risk management. Professor Pinteris not only clarified the basic situation of each specialization in the financial industry, but also gave his own advice for every student according to the skills and interests of each individual. I made my decision based on his advice and I think I do choose a specialization which I’m most keen on and skilled in.
Instead of simply teaching formulas and theorems, Professor Pinteris often invites experts in the financial sector to give lectures to us. We’ve learned a lot from the lectures on hedge funds, corporate finance reporting, etc.
“Career path is not linear.” That’s Professor Pinteris’s philosophy! We cannot predict the next stage in which we’ll be. So try to listen more, learn more, think deeper. It can help us adapt ourselves to the changing circumstances. Survival of the fittest always applies and especially applies to the competitive financial industry.
