Summer in Austin
I can’t believe that it has already been two months since graduation! As you can imagine, finals were a
whirlwind of projects and exams, but once that was over, it was time to celebrate! The Graduate Business Council organized a 7-day extravaganza of “Disorientation” events in Austin, including a party barge on Lake Travis, floating the Guadalupe River
, and renting the Alamo Drafthouse
for a private screening of Ferris Bueller’s Day Off
. At the end of Disorientation, we found ourselves right back where we started two years ago at a family gathering at the Salt Lick BBQ
. What a way to end our Texas MBA adventures! The next day, we graduated in Gregory Gym, and it was hard to believe that it was all over.
After the many nights of studying and celebrations, life does go on after the Texas MBA Program. Many of my classmates took a month to travel Europe and others began packing for their next move. As for me, I have spent my summer in Austin continuing to intern at the Austin Technology Incubator. I have learned so much and I am excited to continue to grow my experience with such a smart organization. In this tough economy, I am also continuing my search for a full-time job. It is definitely no easy feat, but with a lot of networking, I know something will work out. While many of my classmates are in my same position, we often joke that this recession is just one more thing that we’ll laugh about at our 10-year reunion.
