Michigan Diaries: Transition and the First post


You just can’t get enough of the early days of a place you’ve never visited before. Its almost 12 days since I reached US to start a new journey and the excitement is still on. Firstly, Boston for a week at a distant relative’s place and then the anticipated Ann Arbor to attend University of Michigan’s Masters of Entrepreneurship program involving Ross School of Business and College of Engineering. 

It always takes time to setup things in a new place. But, the transition has been really smooth because of distant selfless friends living here. I couldn’t be more grateful to them, for they prevented me from the underlying homesickness that comes in the early few days. Settling down is an important virtue to be productive and get going! Hence, I couldn’t stop myself enrolling in the Ross’s Kresge Library and subscribe to the book The First 90 days by Michael Watkins. A book on accelerating transition and implementing set rules to achieve the maximum in the first 90 days of your career transition. 

The city of Ann Arbor is indeed beautiful and home to the University of Michigan. The university employs the maximum number of people in Ann Arbor, almost 35000. The University is comprised into three campuses: Central, North and South. Few iconic buildings that I have been too are the Stephen M. Ross School of Business, which is the most sustainable green building of a business school and the majestic and Hogwarts lookalike Law Library (the place I am writing this post from). This library is the most quietest place on the campus of more than 20,000 acres spread and I cannot stop writing! 

I will be starting a blog-post series of my experiences and take-backs from the program and keep posting it under a new tab. I will enjoy my weekend till I start my Orientation and Bootcamp tomorrow. See you soon!
