Fleeting Bliss in Beirut

‘Dream as if you’ll life forever, live as if you’ll die tomorrow’   Certainly one of the most over-memed (or ‘grammed) quotes out there. Gandhi must be pissed Yet it is also seemingly the most apt way to describe Lebanon’s approach to happiness.   It was perhaps a rather foolhardy visit – the foreign…

A Beginner’s Guide to Dating at HBS

First, like all things at HBS, know that this is a competitive event. There are winners and losers. There are teams. There are rules, regulations, penalties. There is media buzz. There will be mistakes made, trades, roster cuts, and star performances from the players you least expected. The season will have its ups and downs…

Raamin Noodles: The Nine Commandments for RC Happiness, as Practiced by the Class of 2014

Howdy, RCs! By now you’re more than a month into classes, and I bet you’re feeling like you’re just getting into the swing of things. You’re beginning to understand which cases you need to read closely (TOM) and which cases you can generally get away with skimming (literally anything else). You’re starting to figure out…

MBAx: MBAs Across America

That’s the advice Dave Schiff, Chief Creative at Made Movement, gave us this summer. He left a posh post at the famed ad firm Crispin Porter + Bogusky to move to Boulder and start a creative agency dedicated to the resurgence of American manufacturing.

Welcome, Back and Forward

Welcome, Back and Forward Welcome back future business leaders. And for you first years…welcome forward?  I can tell you that as a first year you will constantly be enamored with the second years, entranced with the classic paradigmagical trap that makes every second year seem much older and wiser than you are.  And, you’re right. …

Raamin Noodles

Welcome to HBS, RCs! It’s fantastic to have a brand-new group of 900-odd students (as opposed to 900 odd students) who will neither understand the jokes ECs will be making at your expense nor, if my experience was any guide, even be exposed to ECs at all – until your old section decides to finally…

Spring Music Preview: Indie Rock Favorites Return

Spring is a time of rebirth (side note: can we please start calling the second semester of the school year here the “Spring” semester rather than “Winter”? Spring: Rebirth :: Winter: Death). The days grow longer. The temperature warms up. Seasonal affected depression rates go down. There’s a lot happening. Among these many goings-on in…

Superbowl?! Surely You Can’t Get More Than a Strike!!

Well, wasn’t that all low key? If there’s one thing you guys do well it’s restraint and modesty at sporting events. I particularly like how you don’t have giant jets of flame shooting 50 feet into the sky as the teams come onto the field through smoke and paper and god knows what. Oh and…


The Joys of Job Searching

Well, our long, glorious winter break is over and its back to reality – snow, recruiting, and those things we like to call classes (right). When I was trying to think about where to begin the column for 2013, there were so many things to chose from: the awesomeness of FIELD 2 (go Ghana!); the…

Play ‘Fairytale of New York’! Christmas is back!

It’s back. It is. It’s unbelievable isn’t it? As soon as the tree comes down, the wreath’s off the door, the world warms up a bit in the Spring and BOOM, it hits you right in the mush. No, not a new hockey season (what is up with that, by the way?), but Christmas. Or…

Ask The Harbuster

Life at HBS, like Lindsay Lohan in 2004 or 2012, can be difficult, volatile and totally uninsurable. But, unlike Lindsay Lohan then and now, life at HBS is something we at The Harbus can help you with.

Outside the Bubble: Trampoline Dodgeball in Boston

Trampoline dodgeball may just be the single best contribution to our favorite recess sport since Ben Stiller and Vince Vaughn brought us the American Dodgeball Association of America. Imagine combining the gravity defying backflips of trampoline (apparently now an Olympic sport) with the childlike excitement of a good old-fashioned dodgeball game. As the new D’s…

Confessions of an RC

I’ve finally started this nutty experience known as RC year and thus far I’ve laughed, cried, drank far too many cocktails, worn too many themed outfits, and smiled more than I have in a long time. I’ve had highs, lows, and everything in between. And we’re one month in – yep, one month. If my…

Meet the RC Section Presidents

To celebrate the election of RC section officers, we asked each of the new Section Presidents three questions: 1. What’s your background? 2. What’s your leadership philosophy? 3.

Cold Call with John Oxtoby (NC)

Cold calls. Your professors love them. You fear them. Your ed rep crushes them. We think it’s about time that this HBS staple gets the rebranding it deserves.

Outside the Bubble: Apple Picking at Tougas Farm

Flannel shirts. Cider donuts. Children shrieking with glee from their seat on the hayride.

The Killers Go Big & Go Bruce on Battle Born

I’d love to be a fly on the wall when The Killers first start discussing a new album.

Restaurant Review: West Bridge

Things I look for in a restaurant: Good atmosphere. Low pretension factor (I loathe “haute cuisine”). Good, interesting food. Cool space. Not exactly rocket science, but often harder to find than you would think, especially inside the Harvard/Central square bubble. Which is why I broke out and ventured to Kendall Square to check out West…
