The Buffett Field Trip

1990, Omaha; Nebraska, USA --- Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett --- Image by © William Coupon/Corbis

Sometimes, those Smealies are lucky. They have their very own beautiful building, their professors are the best paid, and 27 of them, all MBA students, will travel to Omaha, Nebraska on February 6th to meet the world’s richest man: Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire Hathaway. Those of you that started reading this expecting a fieldtrip to a buffet: learn how to spell.

Buffett regularly meets with MBA students from the nation’s business schools. The trip was organized by Smeal MBA students Jeremy Reeh and Dave Noreen.

This trip is a great opportunity for these students. They’ll be going out to one of Mr. Buffett’s favorite restaurants for lunch, and they’ll have the opportunity to ask questions of arguably the most successful investor of all time. Hopefully, some of his knowledge rubs off on them.

Senior Writes Final Column

Senior columns, with all their melodrama and platitudes, usually leave me eye-rolling and shaking my head with a vigor usually reserved for study abroad blog posts. But, as I graduate a week from today, I figured I should give it a go myself. Rather than discuss the origins of Onward State like Evan,  I’d just like to briefly thank a few individuals who have defined my Penn State experience.
