I would say one of the great things about being in Columbus, Ohio is the accessibility you have to other neighboring cities such as Chicago, Indianapolis, or of course Detroit! After the first week of graduate school I needed to get my mind off things and refocus! I wasn't overwhelmed just yet, but I could feel the emotion rising inside. Luckily, it was my friend's 24th birthday this past weekend and it allowed me the opportunity to get away. The drive to Detroit from Columbus is about 3.5 hours, not too bad. I was particularly excited about this trip because:
So our first week of classes ended last Thursday, and I was hoping to get a break to relax after a very grueling 2 days of classes. Instead, I immediately hoped on a plane with 10 other first year students to fly to New Orleans for the 31st annual National Black MBA Conference. The National Black MBA Conference has a multifaceted mission, which you can discover from their website, but my main mission was to start networking and try to find a internship for this summer.
Now that school is only a few days away, I figured I'd write my first post. Yesterday I flew back from Montana where I was visiting my brother. Having never been to that part of the country before, I didn't know what to expect, but I had a great time. I flew into Kalispell which is only a short drive from where my brother lives in Whitefish.
