A Breath of Fresh, Fall Air

I am writing this on my first day back from a much-appreciated fall break. As you may know, our first seven-week session of classes ended last week. This made the Thursday–Sunday break that much more enjoyable, as I had no responsibilities or classwork to worry about!

So how did I spend my break? Enjoying the (finally) cold weather

Cheering on the Buckeyes from home!

and some serious R&R while reflecting on all the great memories that the first seven-week session brought. My weekend was filled with bonfires, pumpkin bread, turkey chili, and dozens of games of college football Saturday (Go Bucks!) and NFL Sunday!

I am very excited to be back in Columbus and starting the second half of the first semester. Time has flown! This seven-week session will lead up to winter break.

We had our first day of classes for our last two required courses today. The first class I went to was Accounting Policy and Research taught by our MAcc program director, Dr. Tzachi. He is one of the most engaging professors I have had thus far in graduate school and I am looking forward to the rest of the session with him!

After his class, I had a Financial Reporting class in which we will be able to apply the knowledge we acquired from intermediate accounting to interesting cases about companies like Apple and Google! I am also taking three business electives in the subject areas of tax, assurance, and human resources. I love that we have the ability to take electives outside of accounting. This allows me to learn and network with students outside the MAcc program while getting exposure to other subject areas at the graduate level!
