One of the most fun parts of the MAcc program so far has been meeting everyone. I know I’ve mentioned this in previous posts, but its so cool to be in class with such different people. It really adds a lot to our group projects (which there are a lot of!) and makes every discussion fun.
I don’t want to make it sound like you only get to know people in class though. There are always events going on, whether they are sponsored by Fisher or created by other students. For example, last weekend one student in the MAcc program hosted a Harvest Festival, which just gave all the MAcc students a chance to relax and talk outside of the classroom.
One of the other incredibly fun things we’ve done is intramural sports. We’ve got an intramural volleyball team – “SMAccdown” and a flag football team – “Return of the MAcc”. I play on the flag football team, and am proud to say that so far we boast a 2-1 record. Not bad for a bunch of accountants!
We really do have a lot of fun together, and we’re also building a great network for the future. The relationships and friendships we’re making today will last beyond our year in the MAcc program, both personally and professionally. You never know when you’ll need a great peer reference, and it’s got to be fun to come back to OSU to watch a football game with your friends from grad school!
