EC student Maria Wich-Vila (OE) is well aware of the fact that, as outgoing humor editor/writer for the HBS newspaper, she is here supposed to write some sort of fond farewell, a last Harbus hurrah. However, continuing with her breathtaking record so far this term, she won’t be able write such a farewell, because she is currently very busy not writing her papers. Even though her her overwhelming extra-curricular duties, satirical and otherwise, have meant that she may be the first EC student in history to retro-actively hit the RC screen, she feels that it’s worth it: the gift of laughter far exceeds the gift of graduation, even if the only person she makes laugh is that rock-climbing Swedish guy that lives down the hall from her. The one whose first language is not English. When asked for a reaction to her impending academic Armageddon, she replied, “I’ve always wanted to make up a completely meaningless sentence to say, and then quote myself saying it in The Harbus. Anything to fill the page?”
The Harbus is the independent, non-profit
news organization of Harvard Business School.
