Those walking through the halls of the Tippie College this week may notice an increase in zombie activity, especially concentrated near the computer lab, vending machines, and Pat’s Diner. The Henry Fund and Krause Fund analysts are turning in final drafts of their semester research today, and many of the teams have spent long hours editing their spreadsheets and reports this week.
Over the last few days, I have interacted with a number of tired and groggy analysts who are likely responsible for the increase in zombie sightings around the building. In general, they are harmless, as long as they have access to a steady supply of energy drink and a spreadsheet. Most of the sightings should taper off in a couple of days.
That said, it is a good idea to have a zombie apocalypse preparation kit – just in case. Fortunately, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has assembled guidelines to help us prepare for an actual zombie emergency.
