Just so that no one gets the wrong impressions that it is all work and no play around here, we do get chances on a regular basis to engage in a wide variety of activities outside of class and the career search.
For example, last Friday night was the first year vs. second year slow pitch softball game, organized by the Fisher social chair. It was a fun, semi-competitive game, and a good chance to get to know other people from the program outside of the classroom setting. The game was held at Fred Beekman park, a large sports complex with a variety of sports fields on West campus.
Even though people who attend top ranked MBA programs generally don’t like to lose so both teams wanted to win, everyone was still encouraged to play. I hadn’t played softball since undergrad intramural leagues, which was some time ago, and still had a lot of fun participating and helping my team out. Even though the weather wasn’t the most co-operative, the game was followed up with a cookout at fisher commons, where both teams and the spectators could enjoy some grilled food and beverages.
