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.

New information session date announced

Some of you may have been looking out for the next scheduled information session.  This quarter is busy with so many wonderful progams and activities that we have found it difficult to reserve large rooms and dates for our sessions!  We now have an April date on the calendar, so register here to attend the next information session for the MBA program for Working Professionals.  We will be skipping May, but stay tuned for the June date!

Spring break and our response time

Thanks for your patience!

All Fisher graduate students are on their well-deserved spring breaks this week. Everyone will be back on campus by next Monday (March 28). Why is this of concern to anyone who might be reading this blog post? If you have contacted the Fisher MBA Admissions Office via its email account (mba@fisher.osu.edu), it is likely you have interacted with our MBA student ambassadors. When students are not on campus, it decreases our staffing that handles these general inquiries by at least 80%.

The mba@fisher.osu.edu email account will be monitored during spring break – but it will likely not be checked as often as it normally is since the number of people to assist with the account is significantly reduced during spring break. We will be back to “normal” staffing levels next week. Until then, we thank you for your patience!

P.S. If you have anything that is urgent, you can always contact the Fisher Graduate Programs Office directly at +1-614-292-8511


Register now for the Fisher 5K (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!

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 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.”
