Last April I attended Fisher’s Red Carpet Event, which was a great way to meet some of my future classmates and professors and to learn more about the program. I learned about Fisher Board Fellows for the first time at that event, and knew instantly that it was something I wanted to be a part of. Fisher Board Fellows is a student-run organization that places MBA students on the boards of non-profit organizations in Columbus.
While the softball game we played versus the second years was mainly for networking and getting to know our fellow MBAs, the Fisher 1st Year Flag Football Championship was all about pride.
As you may be aware, we at Fisher, have loads of student organizations at Fisher( 22 to be precise). If you think you want to learn more about analytics, you have the FBAA(Fisher Business Analytics Association). If you want to explore Operations and Logistics, you have OLMA. You get the drift. One such organization which is close to my heart is Fisher Board Fellows.
There's naturally going to be a rivalry between MBA classes. Second years will think they have the best class ever and the first years will naturally think they have the coolest, most awesome and interesting class ever (I only say that because it's true in this case). And, as far as I know, there's only one way to settle which team is cooler: pickup softball games in the rain.
5 weeks into the 2nd year of my MBA experience, I’ve noticed one key thing: I am BUSY –much busier than I had anticipated…. But in a good way. I’ve had the opportunity to take leadership roles as the President of two wonderful student organizations at Fisher, and I’ve loved every minute of it.
