Amongst other activities, one of the activities I have been very involved in during the MBA program is Fisher Follies. “What’s that?!”, you say?
“Fisher Follies is a non-profit organization whose purpose is to foster community at the Fisher College of Business, encourage creativity, support local charities through a variety show, and to generally lampoon the life of business school students.”
Generally speaking, it’s a lot of fun, an opportunity to show off some of your hidden/or not so hidden creative talents and raise money for local charities.
This Friday night (March 5th, 2010) is the live and silent auction held at the Blackwell from 7 – 10 pm.
The variety show will be held in the new Ohio State student union on Friday, May 7th, 2010 – SAVE THE DATE!
Taking a leadership role in any of our student organizations is a lot of work, however, it can be a very gratifying experience. One of the best parts of leading this organization is the ability to give back to the community in so many ways, but especially through laughter.
In case you’re wondering what people donate – the list is long and varied – and in lieu of my usual drink reference – one of the items I’m donating this year is in partnership with my classmate Scott Hessian: we’re donating a wine tasting and education session for a small group of people covering roughly 4 wines and tapping into our areas of expertise. I can’t wait to see who bids on this experience and look forward to fulfilling that donation next quarter!
