Can you believe it? This is the last post you’ll read from me during Winter Quarter! And unfortunately, that means my posting days are quickly running out too…The LAST winter quarter post will be dedicated to a brief recap of, you guessed it, winter quarter. But first, I wanted to extend an opportunity to all of you.
By this point, many of you have been accepted to OSU and are planning on joining the Buckeye network in a few short months. Many more of you may still be considering applying. During my last quarter at OSU, I’d like to dedicate a bunch of my posts to the specific questions that you have! So – leave me some comments with exactly what you want to know…which classes to take? what organizations to join? where to eat on High Street? where to live? Anything and everything is fair game, and I’ll then dedicate a post to it! Don’t leave me hanging here guys – ask away!
Now, on to winter quarter.
We kind of got spoiled in that it wasn’t brutally cold the entire time. Sure, we had cold days and rainy days, but it definitely could’ve been worse. For those of you coming to Ohio, you’ll soon find out this weather is kind of to be expected – and by this weather, I mean the kind that you wake up and have no idea what season it is. Ohio is always unpredictable.
I took an Entrepreneurial Finance class taught by Professor Berk Sensoy (Finance 844) and really enjoyed it! I’ll start by saying it wasn’t what I expected, in that the focus was on large companies and how they interact with angels/venture capitalists, but there were some smaller companies discussed too. The material was interesting, and Professor Sensoy did a great job leading class discussions. I’d recommend this class if you have any interest in entrepreneurship!
I also took a strategy course with Professor Jay Dial – I’m not sure what the graduate course number is though. I had to take it as a capstone class for my undergraduate degree (since I’m in the BSBA/Combined MAcc program). He does teach it at the graduate level, and told my undergraduate class that the MBA version is essentially the same. I would definitely recommend taking this class – it expands your views and challenges your thinking process on a daily basis.
I had a lot of fun doing two indoor triathlons at the RPAC. One of these was put on by the OSU Triathlon club, and they do this every year. If you’re a triathlete or even just curious about the sport, definitely check this out! It’s all time based, so you don’t have to worry about not being able to finish. The second triathlon was the John Glenn Friendship 7 Indoor Tri, put on to honor John Glenn’s trip to the moon. It was also a ton of fun, but I don’t think they’ll be hosting that particular tri again. Rec Sports at OSU always does such a good job of putting on events though, so you’ll definitely be able to find something fun next winter!
Well, I have two finals today that I’m going to get back to studying for. Hard to believe that I’ve only got one quarter left in the MAcc program. You’ll quickly find that time flies in the program – enjoy it while you’ve got it! And remember…comment with questions that you have or with posts that you want to read about! I want my spring quarter posts to be exactly what you want and need to get ready for an excellent year at Fisher and Ohio State.
