It's hard to believe that our first semester of the MAcc program is over and we're now starting a new one. It seems like we were all going to our first classes only a few weeks ago. Now that I've survived that LOOONG drive back home to Wisconsin - and then back to Columbus ... here are some of my reflections on my first semester in the MAcc program. Hopefully they can be useful to some of you readers out there.
As a way to celebrate the end of our semester, the Fisher MAcc program hosted a MAcc Fall reception for us the Friday after our last classes, and it was a very festive event! The MAcc Fall reception at the Faculty Club consisted of a cocktail hour, dinner, and speeches. This event was an excellent opportunity to bring students, faculty and staff together one last time before the holiday break! I even had the chance to mingle with one of my professors from undergrad.
As many of you may know, Ohio State is a sports school, and we dominate in almost every division 1 sport you can think of. One in particular that brings a lot of attention to our school is... FOOTBALL. Ohio State is currently sitting as the number 1 ranked collegiate team in the nation, but this is not an unusual thing for Ohio State football. OSU is consistently a top 10 football team year in and year out in the recent past.
I decided to switch things around for the blog this time and give you guys a little sneak peek of some of the places that I regularly visit in Gerlach Hall.
Most people use COTA (Central Ohio Transit Authority) to get around the city. For Ohio State students, the bus service is almost free (we pay a small fee at the beginning of each semester). We just swipe our BuckID as the fare when we get onto the bus.
