Little did I expect that Red Carpet this year would be just as an amazing experience as it was last year! This time, from the perspective of a current student and point person to welcome in part of the admitted class, I realized how much fun it is to share about Columbus and the program experience so far. Also, through other current students sharing their stories, I was reminded of many opportunities to experience this amazing city!
Each year, the Master of Accounting Program organizes the Volunteer Income Assistant (VITA) program to help local individuals file their Federal and state income taxes. We, as volunteers, go to a site twice a week to help individuals who have made appointments. Most of the tax preparers are either enrolled in the MAcc program or undergraduate accounting students. In order to be certified to help file taxes, we need to pass at least four different exams.
As I've posted about in previous blogs, I'm originally from Oklahoma, and because of this, I am a huge Oklahoma City Thunder fan. Our franchise moved to OKC when I was 13 years old. I became an instant fan and have supported the team ever since. Obviously, a large part of the Ohio State experience is attending Buckeye football games. Another perk for sports fans, though, is being just a two-hour drive away from Cleveland.
It’s game day today! I've recently decided to get back into sports and more specifically with soccer by registering a team in Ohio State’s intramural soccer tournament. The league consists of 28 teams separated in pools of four. Each team has to play once against each other and the best two teams in the pools advance in the playoffs when all the pool game have been played. It only cost $80 to register a team and up to 11 players.
One of my Sunday traditions since becoming a student in the Full-Time MBA program is visiting the Graduate Student Event Hub to see what exciting things are happening at Fisher over the next several weeks.
