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…

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…

Cold Call with Bryan Mezue (OI)

KL: First things first.  Where are you from? BM: I was born in a middle-sized South-East Nigerian city of Enugu, and spent my first 11 years of life there. After that I’ve moved around a lot with family and then later with my job. I’ve lived for significant portions of my life in Doha, London, Beijing, and now Boston….

Incitement to Indifference: Transgender at HBS

As the first openly transgender student at Harvard Business School, and perhaps at any top business school in the United States, Del (NC) has faced and overcome a unique set of challenges. Del’s section mate, Daniel Selikowitz (NC), reports. “To whom is this news?” It is October 10, 2012 – two months into first semester,…

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…

The Wrong Kind of Flakes: Tardiness at HBS

There’s a creeping problem at HBS. It’s ugly. It’s annoying. It’s viral. It’s flakiness. We’ve all seen it. The friend who rolls up to a meeting 10 minutes late, coffee in hand. The sectionmate who shoots out a text just before an event saying “Can’t make it anymore”. Or the club member who doesn’t show…

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. Are you anxious about academics, confused about campus, skeptical about socializing, or adamant about alliteration? Our resident Harbuster,…

Giving Voice to Values

What’s all this talk about vulnerability and openness? Aren’t we supposed to be tough HBS students who know exactly what we’re doing with our lives? As ECs and RCs alike know, the school is making a concerted effort, through LEAD, FIELD, and other means, to remind its charges that self-reflection and interdependence are good things….

ND beats NJ in RC Championship Showdown

In a battle between two of the school’s best flag football squads, undefeated ND came out victorious in a 52-40 showdown against a formidable NJ squad. It took only four total plays for both teams to score in a preview of the “track meet” to follow. Section D quarterback Flynn Cochran posted a Manning-esque QB…

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…

Cold Call with Claire Friedman (NE)

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. Each week, The Harbus chats with a randomly selected member of the student body. This week, Diane Chang caught up with Claire Freidman (NE) about her life as stand-up…

Muslims Celebrate Eid-ul-Adha, the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’

Today, Muslims at HBS and around the world will celebrate the festival of ‘Eid-ul-Adha’. The Arabic word ‘Eid’ means festival or feast, while the word ‘Adha’ translates to sacrifice. Consequently, ‘Eid-ul-Adha’ is also known as the ‘festival of sacrifice’. Eid-ul-Adha is one of the two major holy days in Islam. It is observed after ‘Hajj’,…

Oh Priscilla, Priscilla: A Reconsideration of Priscilla Ball

In front of 90 people, I described a time at work when I disagreed strongly about something, yet did not speak up. In true case-method fashion, my LEAD professor pressed, “why didn’t you speak up?” I feared marginalization. I still fear marginalization. But I have a greater fear. A thought experiment: it’s the annual meeting…

Confessions of a Newly Minted Boston Sports Fan

Coming from London, one of the first things in the “Miss This About Home” box was the season ticket at Arsenal. Shouting and screaming, accusing the referee of all manner of unspeakable things, and hurling abuse at opponents were a staple part of any week from August to May. How would the devil be released?…

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…

Focus on Religion: Latter-Day Saint Student Association

Chances are you may have met a member of the Latter-day Saint Student Association (LDSSA, also known as the Mormons) on campus.
