Happy Monday everyone!
This weekend was a whirlwind. It was Pre-View Weekend at Stern for Admitted Students. I wasn’t able to attend in 2011 when I was accepted but am grateful to have had the opportunity to volunteer at it the past two years. The weekend is full of fun and informational activities to help admitted students figure out if Stern is the right school for them. Specifically, I volunteered to speak to admitted students at the Marketing table for the “Explore your Path” session on Saturday. Students interested in pursuing a marketing career came by to find out about what companies recruit on campus, how the GMA helps students prepare for interviews, etc. I also volunteered to facilitate one of the icebreaker sessions, where students sat around a table and answered some funny questions to get to know each other better.
Also, I am sad to say that I am officially no longer a GMA Co-President. Yesterday was our end-of-year board dinner, and we finally passed the torch to the new presidents and board for 2013-2014. It was definitely sad – Jennifer and I have loved every minute of leading the club this year and will dearly miss it. We are so happy to have had the opportunity to make an impact on students with a similar passion for marketing.
Fun week ahead though! Tomorrow, 20 of us are going to the Comedy Cellar for a show after class. We’ve been wanting to go for so long and thought it would be fun to do it on a weeknight when everyone is available and when the place isn’t as crowded as it would be on the weekends. And Saturday is the SPRING GALA! The Spring Gala is our formal open bar and hors d’oeuvres event in April. This year, it’s at the Gansevort Park Avenue. This will be one of the last opportunities to have the entire school together in one venue. We have senior week coming up in mid-May, but that’s just for the MBA2’s obviously.
That’s it for now…will have more later this week or next!
