Beating the cold

“It’s currently 7 degrees, but with the windchill it feel about 5 degrees below zero.” OK, not exactly what I wanted to hear waking up and getting ready for class. Coming off a long weekend filled with leisurely studying made the news even more painful.

But, no matter the temperature outside, we are already in our 3rd week of the term and classes are in full swing. Cases are due within days, project deadlines are approaching, two midterms on Monday and my operations homework is due on Thursday.

Don’t forget the internship search is in full swing and interviews are popping up every week. Fisher keeps students on their toes and constantly growing and improving… However, it’s not all work and studying!

After about 18 weeks of being in class together, I know and love my core group. We have a system in place for projects and it seems to be working on very well. All the first years have figured out ways to study and prepare for class – even good ol’ finance. Our social chairs host great events that allow the class to mingle and relax at the end of the week.

If looking to get off campus for a bit, I am happy to report the Columbus Blue Jackets have (finally) returned – and starting the season off strong. You can always take a Short North Walking tour and experience the incredible food of the North Market. I love the Arena District, and they always have something exciting going out to beat the cold and snow.

Bottom line? No time for winter blues here at Fisher.  

The Countdown to Fisher Follies Auction

Last Friday evening, all graduate students at the Fisher College of Business united at the Blackwell and eat, drink and BID.

Bid on what, you ask?

A wine night with Professor Anand,  bowling with Ankerman, a thirty minute flight with a first-year MBA pilot, a ride in a 1967 Chevekke SS 396, brownies, A clippers game, a scrumptious cake, coffee for a week, a trip to the Rock-n-Roll Hall of Fame and more. This event is put on by the student organization, Fisher Follies, and all proceeds to to members of the Fisher community who face unexpected hard times.

A quick peek of what’s to come…


This was my first auction, and I was SO EXCITED for the auction. It was a great way to bond with my Fisher classmates, but also to take a break from classes and finals. Fisher Follies is another way get to know my Fisher family even better. It’s a way for professors, faculty and students to relax outside of the classroom and get to know one another.

Want to know what incredible prize will be mine or who wins the BBQ with Dr. Inks and Rucci? I’ll let you know in the next post!

See you soon!

Still want more of Follies? Great news – it lasts ALL YEAR. The 2013 Fisher Follies Variety Show is on April 19 – I know that we have some incredible talent in Gerlach Hall that is ready to be on stage!
