UR Simon Weekend Reflections

The following blog post was written by Mikayla Hart, 2016 MBA Candidate.

I’m very grateful that I participated in UR Simon the other weekend. This annual event, which is for Simon’s newly admitted MBA and MS students, was a busy couple of days. Students met future classmates, attended a case discussion led by Professor Greg Dobson, participated in a Career Management Center Workshop, sat in on current student and alumni panels, learned more about Simon’s social and academic clubs and more!

I remember being in this same position last year, as an incoming MBA student, and being overwhelmed with joy for the life change that was to come. I’m finishing my first year at Simon and I had just as enjoyable a time attending this event, being on the other side of things – the best part was seeing the incoming class and the looks of excitement (and a little bit of nervousness!) on their faces.16526052963_27a8413b45_z

I had great interactions with the students over social gatherings, meals and happy hours. These were great opportunities to get to know the students, discuss career interests and passions and share my insights on how to prepare for the recruitment process in the fall. And of course I enjoyed showing students around Rochester and all its hidden treasures!

It was a pleasure to meet the incoming class and I look forward to seeing them on campus when they return in the fall. One of the best things about Simon is its strong sense of community. The interactions I had this weekend confirm that the strength of this community will continue to develop this year and always.
