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 SMF class that will be affected by this switch to 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 SMF 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 Ohio State class of 2011!


UTSAV was everything it promised to be: colorful outfits, great music and amazing dancing!  Check out my saree!  For more pictures on UTSAV (and other events), be sure to check out the OSU Fisher Graduate Student Life Flickr Page.  We are constantly updating the page with all fun Fisher events!


In an earlier post, I mentioned that on Thursday, May 19th,  Fisher will be celebrating UTSAV!  I am elated to be part of the event and I am super excited for the beautiful costume I will be wearing in the annual fashion show.  Tomorrow, I will be representing the region of “Rajasthan.”  I put in a preview of what my get-up will look like and the beautiful saree I will wear.  Wish me luck!

UTSAV is coming!

On Thursday, May 19th the Fisher Indian Students Association (FISA), will put on the biggest social event of the year, “UTSAV”.

“UTSAV” celebrates the diversity at The Fisher College of Business. The event includes musical, Bollywood dancing and the much awaited Fashion show participated by faculty, staff and students. Delicious Indian lunch would be served parallel to the event.

It’s Fisher Pride Week!

SMF is celebrating its own Fisher Pride at Fisher Fest!

An inside look at Sen. Sarbanes’ visit to Fisher College of Business (Ohio State) on April 12th

One of the benefits of being a student at the Fisher College of Business is your access to a truly amazing number of renowned guest experts/speakers. Example: On April 12, Fisher was honored to host former Senator Paul Sarbanes, co-author of the landmark Sarbanes-Oxley Act, which overhauled federal oversight of publicly traded companies in the U.S. Click on the clip below to see and hear some of his presentation to Fisher MAcc students.

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!

To register and for more information, please click here. (HINT: If you register by March 19, you’ll be able to get a discounted rate on the registration fee.)

“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.”
