Introducing the 2011-12 Fisher MLHR student bloggers

Students writing about their experiences = interesting blogs!

It’s clear by being on Ohio Stat’s campus for even a short amount of time that the students here are passionate about and loyal to Ohio State. I am glad to announce the 2011-12 MLHR student bloggers are now blogging.

Continuing the tradition started a couple of years ago, there is a group of Fisher MLHR students who will be blogging about their experiences while enrolled as a Fisher MLHR student for the upcoming academic year. Be sure to check out the blog regularly to gain a first-person perspective of what it’s like to be at Fisher and at Ohio State.

Semesters are coming! Semesters are coming!

Semesters are coming! Semesters are coming!

Paul Revere’s ride through the night is one of the more famous moments in early American history. He famously warned everyone that “The British are coming! The British are coming!” I know, this is a very rough segue but, as you may know, Ohio State is transitioning to semesters, effective summer 2012. The first MLHR class that will be entirely on semesters will be the class admitted for autumn 2012.

If you are part of this group, what does this mean? The biggest change is that Ohio State’s school year will start much earlier than in the past. For example, 2011 autumn term begins on September 21. In 2012, autumn term will begin on August 22, a full month earlier than the start of autumn 2011. The Fisher MLHR program has already incorporated this earlier start with its application deadlines. If you submit a complete application by the applicable deadline, you will be reviewed for autumn 2012 admission. In addition to starting the academic year sooner, the academic year will end sooner. For example, spring 2012 commencement will occur on June 11, 2012. Compare this to 2013 spring commencement on May 5, 2013.

If you have any questions on this or anything else, please let us know.

The record setting spring 2011 commencement at Ohio State

Ohio State graduated the most students ever in a single commencement ceremony on July 13, 2011. Added bonus: The weather was perfect. Mid 70s, partly cloudy, breezy!

Congratulations to the Fisher MLHR class of 2011!

UTSAV 2011 at Fisher

UTSAV 2011

Last week, the Fisher Indian Students Association (“FISA”) hosted UTSAV. What is UTSAV? In FISA’s own words:

UTSAV, the flagship event of the FISA, is a celebration of everything Indian: Bollywood, Bharatnatyam, Bindis and Biryani! One of the most awaited events in Spring quarter at Fisher, UTSAV showcases the talents of our very own Fisher students, be it dancing on bollywood medleys or sashaying down in beautiful Indian clothes. A fun event for both participants and the audience, finished up with sumptuous Indian food!

Luckily the weather held up. We’ve had a much rainier than normal spring in central Ohio and many people worried that it might get rained out. Luckily, everything worked out. The fashion show (see photo above), the Bollywood dance routines (see below), musical interludes, etc., all went without a hitch. Great time to be had by all! If you’re anywhere near Fisher’s campus in mid May, you need to check out UTSAV. Definitely one of the premier events on campus! You can see additional photos from UTSAV 2011 here.

Register now for the Fisher 5K (Sunday, May 1, 2011)


The Fisher 5K, a charity race organized by the Fisher 5K Association of the Fisher College of Business at The Ohio State University, is an annual Run/Walk (5 kilometers or 3.1 miles) which began in 2004 and is held on The Ohio State University campus. It is the largest service event hosted by the Fisher graduate students and the largest 5K on Ohio State’s campus. Every year this charity race is organized during the spring and the proceeds of the race go to the benefit of the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus. In 2010, over 700 people participated helping to raise over $17,000 for the Boys and Girls Club of Columbus.

The weather has been fantastic every year they’ve held the race – fingers crossed for more good weather on May 1, 2011! Not only does the event raise money for a very good cause, the race’s course is a great way to see, up close and personal, much of Ohio State’s beautiful Columbus campus!

“But for Ohio State”

But for Ohio State, I would have never been able to go to college. I love Ohio State, and all the good it does. I hope this gift stimulates those who have received an education here, or been touched by this remarkable institution, to think about how they, too, can give back. ~Les Wexner, OSU and Fisher Class of ’59

As you may have heard, Les Wexner, Chairman and CEO of the Limited Brands, just announced a donation of $100 million to The Ohio State University, the largest gift given in Ohio State’s history. Hear what President E. Gordon Gee and Les Wexner have to say about this “transformational moment.”
