As the end of the first term has come to a screeching halt, it is hard to believe that graduation is only a couple of months away. The feeling is bittersweet to say the least. While I am dying to graduate and put my new skills to the test, I have made plenty of friends that I will miss when we all go our separate ways.
Where have the past two years gone? I still remember sitting through orientation at the Blackwell and listening to various administrators and faculty members telling students that their time in the MBA program would fly by. I remember even more vividly thinking to myself that they were full of it. A few weeks later, during my stats, finance, and accounting classes, I recall thinking that the program might never end. Now, two years later, I realize that they were absolutely correct. The full-time MBA program flew by.
I GRADUATED! This past weekend was such a mix of emotions, family, friends, graduation celebrations -- and lots of food and good times. Maybe a little bit too much food and good times, but hey, it was graduation!
As much as I wasn't ready to say goodbye to Ohio State as a student, Spring Commencement was celebrated on Sunday, May 5. Over 8,000 graduates were packed onto the field in Ohio Stadium, and I was surrounded by my MAcc classmates as we listened to President Obama, OSU President E.
It's hard to believe my eighty classmates and I have completed our Master of Accounting degree from the Fisher College of Business! On Friday, May 3, we gathered at the Ohio Union with faculty, family and friends, to celebrate our success in this program. The evening was complete with a reception where I was able to meet the families of many of my close MAcc friends and chat with faculty members one last time before the summer.
