This week marks the last week of the first session of spring semester for most specialized master's programs' students, which means that the Graduate Lounge in Gerlach Hall is busier than usual. To offer some insights into our graduate life, below are some ways students often use the lounge for.
You would think that graduate students are all studying, networking and no fun (the last part was kind of exaggerated, but you know what I mean). However, we do have those days where we would gather and goof around. A couple of weeks ago, after our midterms, our SMF class along with our professors, decided to make use of a Saturday and went bowling. We had a total of seven lanes reserved and we went all out playing against each other.
One of the reasons I enjoy the MAcc program so much is because it allows me the flexibility to take elective classes that spark my professional interests. As a student who one day aspires to be the CFO of a company, I wanted to take extra HRM (human resource management) classes to understand more about organizational structure, what makes people tick, and how to be an effective leader.
School continues grinding along at Fisher for MAcc students. This semester gives us a lot more freedom with electives because there are zero required classes. It's definitely a different experience and it's pretty exciting to hear about all of the diverse electives my friends are taking.
