It seems like it was just summer and we were all arriving to Columbus, OH to begin our first year in 90 degree weather. How time flies when you’re having fun!
The excitement has definitely continued – fall is in the air, and everyone here in the Graduate Programs Office is gearing up for Fisher Season Premiere. We are excited to host over 70 prospective students at the event this weekend – between informational sessions, team building activities, tours and a chance to meet faculty, staff and students, we are excited to have everyone on campus to show what the Fisher full-time MBA program is all about. We have so much to be proud of, and I am excited to be on the ‘current student’ side to showcase our wonderful program, facilities and opportunities.
One recent event that I must showcase is an opportunity I was able to take advantage of on Wednesday evening. We had the wonderful fortune of hearing GE CEO Jeff Immelt and Warren Buffett speak at Mershon Auditorium. Hosted by Fisher, these two amazing leaders took part in the ‘Fireside Chat’ event to kick off the second National Middle Market Summit. It was so influential to hear these powerful leaders discuss the economy and their backgrounds – and even crack a few jokes! This is an experience I will never forget.
Along with the seasonal change, as you all know, comes football. It was such great fun to be at the game to see OSU’s big overtime win against Purdue last weekend (GO BUCKS!), but there is also football excitement going on over at an intramural field near campus. On Sunday afternoons, you can find the GPO Student MBA Ambassadors (from all programs) combining to form one of the best flag football teams in the league. Excitingly enough, we have made the playoffs! (…More to come on this after we hopefully pave our way to the championships!)
