Meet Our Current Students, a series of posts from current real estate MBA students on their experiences in the program:
The Graduate Business Association (GBA) hosted the Spring Ball (aka MBA Prom) last weekend. The event was held at the Monona Terrace, a Frank Lloyd Wright masterpiece on Lake Monona in downtown Madison. The event's theme "A Night in Las Vegas" suited the glamour and excitement of the evening.
Dean Michael Knetter kicked things off by introducing students of the incoming class, and then we were off! Food and drinks were accompanied by Vegas-style gaming - but without real money (there are still laws against that here in Wisconsin). Elvis Presley made a brief appearance, and real estate's own Siegfried & Roy performed all night with their tiger, Montecore.
The "prom" was a welcome respite from the rigors of finishing up the year and finding an internship. Now it is back to the grindstone until May 14th!
Travis Campbell is a first year MBA student in the James A. Graaskamp Center for Real Estate at the Wisconsin School of Business. He is presently enjoying a beautiful spring day in Madison.
