Laura Barnes, Section B

What do you
think is the most 
romantic spot on campus?
First, picking up some baby barefoot wine bottles from the Grille. Then, admiring the artwork in Aldrich. Nothing like some fine art to spark conversation.

What is your favorite guilty pleasure?
Mob Wives, the VH1 reality show.

Hannah Kattermann, Section G

What do you think is the most romantic spot on campus?
That’s gotta be the Aldrich Cart. Can’t tell you the number of times a handsome young man and I have blushed as our hands gently grazed one another’s and played a game of “no you take it” as we both reached
for the last cup of affordably priced $4.00 pudding.

Hot cheetos and Takis!

A huge…personality. Oh, and a yellow lab.

April 25, because it’s not too hot and not too cold. All you need is a light jacket.

My appetite.

Beers and wings at Cheers followed by ice cream at JP Licks.

Merrin White, Section H

What do you think is the most romantic spot on campus?

What is the best advice you can give for the HBS dating scene?

What is your best attribute?
I always try to keep things fun. Not taking myself too seriously always helps, whether in
the dating scene or in the classroom.

What is your ideal date?
Something fun but relaxed and maybe a little competitive. I personally find that bowling always shows someone’s true colors.

Leave the cold calls in the classroom.

Went through an
entire meal not knowing if it was a networking dinner or a date. Takeaway: don’t go on dates with someone you’re more excited to add on LinkedIn than on Snapchat.

Using the large soup container for Friday Fro-yo
