The Killers Go Big & Go Bruce on Battle Born

School Year In Review: A Look Back on The Top Club Hits

1)     “LE7ELS” by Avicii Oh, sometimes I get a good feeling. I get a feeling that Avicii’s monster hit, “LE7ELS”, is absolutely the club song of the year. It’s been sampled, mashed up, recut and replayed with several major artists ranging from David Guetta to Flo Rida. LE7ELS even appeared in the Bud Light Platinum…

There are still, however, a couple of acts coming through town in early December that are worth seeing – give yourself a break from exams and papers and check them out! Wed, Dec….

HBS Rock Band in Hostile Takeover

What’s Enough, Part II

Often when people from outside our community think of Harvard Business School students, certain stereotypes come to mind. We are workaholics. We are arrogant, long on form, and short on function. We care more about personal achievement, money, power and status than just about anything else. Do these stereotypes reflect our true nature? We were…

Regional Profiles – South – A Closer Look at Atlanta, Georgia

Cost of LivingCompared to other cities of its size and stature, Atlanta is cheap. For example: Two roommates and I shared a 2,000sq-ft multi-level loft for just $1,400 a month (that’s $0.70/sq-ft compared to the $3.75/sq-ft I pay for a One Western Avenue apartment) History/CultureMuch of Atlanta’s history is tied to the Civil War and…
