Fun times at Happy Hour

7 Oct 2010 by Tina Hicks, No Comments »

It was an evening of fun, fellowship, good food and drink, a reunion of sorts for MBA alumni who recently graduated to re-connect with some of their classmates who are still pressing forward to finish.  Bones Grille was a popular place to be on that particular Friday night and the atmosphere was lively.  With each arrival there were hearty welcomes and congratulations for the newest graduates.  IMG_1420The conversation surrounded the usual small talk of what was happening with each person, but gradually transitioned to stories about favorite faculty members, classes and which textbooks were saved from the bookstore buy-back.  Those who graduated passed on survival wisdom to their old classmates and shook their heads knowingly to the tales of late night homework.  An MBA is not for the faint of heart and anything worth something requires effort.  The satisfaction of completion of a goal is what makes the journey worth IMG_1425the price. 

The dynamics of the students and alumni were evident even here at a happy hour.  One of the strengths of the MBA program lies in the diversity of students’ backgrounds, personalities and more.  Each student/alumnus brings something different to the table.  One could feel the energy this group creates even when sitting around in a restaurant.  Many suggestions for improvements and/or additions for the MBA program were offered along with encouragement for those practices that continue to work.  It’s amazing what can be developed over a platter of half price nachos!

The Lansdale MBA coordinator, Joe Zukauskas, made an appearance to visit with his current and former students and their guests.  IMG_1421Overall it was a relaxing evening with great conversation and the opportunity to rekindle friendships and connections with fellow MBA scholars.  With another successful Happy Hour under their belts, the talks turned to the next month. 

Keep your eyes and ears open for the next Happy Hour date/time/place to be posted soon!

*Please note: Happy hour events are planned by students/alumni.  They are not officially organized by the MBA program in anyway.*
