National Middle Market Summit on October 6 at The Ohio State University

There are always a lot of interesting things going on at The Fisher College of Business and The Ohio State University. On October 6, the Fisher College of Business and GE Capital are sponsoring a major conference on Ohio State’s campus. The National Middle Market Summit is bringing together some of the best minds in business to discuss ways to nurture “middle market” companies – smaller than large conglomerates but bigger than small companies, this is an area of business that has not been actively researched before. This conference will help to start that dialogue.

If you are unable to attend in person, you can register to view the proceedings online. Click below for the personal invitation from Fisher’s Dean Christine Poon.

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!

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)

Photobucket

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 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.”
