On March 30th, the Fisher College of Business hosted its first annual Graduate Student Kickball Tournament! Five teams of Fisher graduate students signed up to play in this tournament hosted at the ARC. I played on a team with other Master of Accounting students.
The tournament was competitive. In our first game, we beat a team of MBAs in extra innings. The game was tense, with our team having to hold the MBAs to one run in the bottom of the extra inning or we would lose or play another inning. Our championship game came against students from the MHRM program, where a few home runs propelled us to victory.
The tournament was especially fun because it gave us an opportunity to come together and meet students from other Fisher graduate programs. Professors played in the kickball tournament too. I was happy to hit a home run off of a professor I had for an HR class. As the winning team, we won a catered lunch of our choosing!
The kickball tournament was another example of a fun opportunity outside of the business school that Fisher offers its graduate students. Hopefully next year’s MAcc team can retain its title!
