Campus Chronicles: The Monroe Street Journal

This week in Campus Chronicles, we’re heading over to Ann Arbor, Michigan to see what The Monroe Street Journal can tell us about recent events at the Ross School of Business:

On February 3rd and 4th, the Michigan Real Estate Club (MREC) attended to the 6th Annual MREC Chicago Forum.The forum’s mission is to allow current graduate students interested in pursuing careers in real estate meet with alumni professionals, and this year was no exception. Ross students were thrilled to engage in a Q&A session with UM’s own Sam Zell, Chairman of Equity Group Investments, LLC.The MREC also visited other firms such as Hines Interests, Union Bank, and Joseph Freed & Associates.Additionally, the MREC hosted an alumni mixer at Fado’s Irish Pub in downtown Chicago, allowing students to chat with Chicago-based UM BBA and MBA graduates and share the latest news from Ross.

Last Thursday, the Ross Scotch Club and the Canadian Club co-hosted a Canadian whisky-tasting event.At the beginning of the two-hour event, non-Canadian attendees were given background information on Canada and the many varieties of whisky produced there.After that came the tasting portion of the evening, during which students tried Canada’s take on whiskey, particularly Canadian Club of Mad Men fame.

This past weekend, Ross MBAs were treated to the 25th annual Ross Follies at the Michigan Theater.This year’s Follies, titled “It’s Always Funny in Follydelphia,” featured skits, songs, dances and videos about the MBA student life.While the Follies are traditionally student-produced, Ross dogs, partners, and professors also performed in this year’s show.Acts included “Glee-EOhs,” a parody of the hit TV show Glee, “Curry Shore,” a dance number that was a fusion of Step Up and Bollywood, and the video “Real Housewives of Ann Arbor.”After the show, students went to a well-attended after-party at Cavern Club.
