My Grad Life: The Intro
Welcome to the Fisher Grad Life Blog!
My name is Elise Zawacki, and over the next two years, I will be sharing my experience in the Masters of Human Resource Management program here at the Fisher College of Business. To better understand the content I will be writing about, here are a few things to know about me. I lived in the state of Michigan for the past 22 years of my life and recently graduated from Central Michigan University where I studied Human Resource Management with a minor in Information Systems. During this time, I also was a part of various student organizations and found a passion for volunteerism and professional development. Although it may be to my family and friends dismay, I couldn’t be happier that I get to call myself a Buckeye.
Outside of my academics, I enjoy a number of hobbies during my free time. A few of these include:
Traveling Everywhere & Anywhere
Most recently, I took a post-graduation trip throughout Europe where I visited Amsterdam, London, Paris, Florence, and Rome. A future goal of mine is to visit every continent in the world (Yes, even Antarctica).
I don’t have a particular topic or subject that I specifically focus on, but lately, I have been picking up any New York Times Best Seller I stumble upon at Barnes & Noble. My long-time favorite author is John Green, and I fully blame him for the reason I am obsessed with life and love quotes.
Food & Drink Exploration
I am a foodie, so this particular hobby is the one I practice most often. Being in a new city makes it fun and easy to do. My pro tip for exploring new places is to use Yelp—it has yet to let me down! Pictured above are two places I most recently checked out, Fox in the Snow Cafe and Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream, they are absolutely worth a trip. This topic will more than likely consume another one of my blog posts so stay tuned!
Although I don’t have the time or money to do this as frequently as I would like, I have managed to attend over 25 concerts in my lifetime. Whether it is country, hip hop, alternative, or electronic music I enjoy it all. Something I have already come to love about Columbus is that there is no shortage of concerts, music venues, and live bands to go to around the city.
Thank you for reading my introductory blog post, and I hope that you stick with me as I continue to write about my graduate school journey.
