Over the course of graduate education at Weatherhead School of Management, students and faculty spend countless hours with one another in formal classroom settings.  Believe it or not, both groups have interests that spread beyond financial reporting, supply chain logistics, and risk management, and recently, Dean Mohan Reddy and Associate Dean Julia Grant heard both groups express a desire for more social opportunities that promote informal interaction. 

Student Services is designing a new monthly mixer called “Pull Up A Chair” for all Weatherhead students and faculty.  Each month, the event will be “hosted” by the chair of a different Weatherhead department; however all faculty are invited and encouraged to attend. 

The first "Pull Up A Chair" event will be hosted by Peter Ritchken, Chair, Department of Banking and Finance on September 28th.  Students and faculty will take advantage of conversation, light dinner fare, and drinks, and compete for table tennis bragging rights as Professor Ritchken and other faculty challenge the students in a Ping Pong tournament.
