Category: Exploring Columbus
Over the weekend I attended one of my fellow classmates, Karina Ribeiro Teixeira, birthday celebration. Karina is a first-year international student from Brazil in the MHRM program and we also work together in the Graduate Program Office together.
Graduate School is a comprehensive experience that encompasses so much more than just the classroom learning. For Fisher MBA students, the experience is enhanced by the vibrant city surrounding us. The city of Columbus is an amazing city comprised of small neighborhoods that offer a wide array of things to see and do. Each neighborhood is distinct, with its own unique feeling, history, restaurants, and places to hangout.
Recently, I decided to explore some local coffee shops with a friend, Christina, in the MAcc program as I didn't want to head for Starbucks constantly. Columbus is filled with some phenomenal coffee shops that are excellent study spots for Fisher graduate students. Below are my two of my current favorites near campus. 1.

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.
About a month ago, I traveled out of state and traveled through CMH, Columbus's airport. While traveling, I got to spend plenty of time in the Columbus airport, which I had not been to since my visit day last year as a prospective MAcc applicant. It brought back plenty of memories, as my dad and I ventured through this same airport last February when we visited Ohio State and its MAcc program for the first time.
