Love in the South

This is a perspective for those who have not experienced the South and all of its intricacies. Entrackasees? You know what I’m talking about. I lived in Alabama following my undergraduate education, during a crucial time in my life as far as relationships go: single and 22. I know what you’re thinking: you were so…

Love means constantly having to say you’re sorry

They say “love means never having to say you’re sorry”, but despite every signal the administration has given us to the contrary, business school is in fact not a critically acclaimed 1970s romantic drama starring Ryan O’Neal and Ali MacGraw – instead we get the more ethnically diverse but arguably less dramatically talented Jordan Strebeck…

How to Get a Job Without Really Trying

Unfortunately, this article is not a critically-acclaimed Broadway musical starring critically-acclaimed actor Daniel Radcliffe – but, much like life here at HBS, this article will be filled with a combination of great learnings and small disappointments. Second on the list of disappointments? The fact that this article came out too late to guide you to…

Raamin Noodles: How to Black Friday

Well folks, November has come and gone, and with it has gone not only the strongest batch of mustaches this campus has seen since the late 1950s, but also that venerable American holiday we know as Thanksgiving. For the somehow-still-confused internationals in the audience, Thanksgiving is the most uniquely American of all holidays because it…

Lets do well at SXSW this SXSW.

Goal: I want this article to be your ROI for tuition. For both years. In the next 700 words and 4 hashtags, readers of this Harbus post will get their $$ back. Execution: As HBS first years, we will not fall into the bad habits networking-like-a-second-year-section-leader that ‘some’ second years have fallen into, fell into…

Dude. You gotta chill. This hallowed institution to which you have entrusted two years of your life, one hundred and twenty thousand of your dollars, and uncounted liver cells is, in fact, very different from the job you just left. Effort isn’t rewarded the same way, 360-degree feedback is considerably less frequent (FIELD 1 doesn’t…

Finding Love at HBS—Going Digital

Dear readers, I have a confession to make: I have tried online dating, and I liked it. Who needs a bar when you can search for a soulmate from the comfort of your own couch? Who needs pickup lines when you have all the time in the world to craft the perfect, witty, feels-like-we’ve-known-each-other-forever message?…

For the Love of Missing Out

How was your day today? Did you make the brown bag lunch with Professor Xavier, catch that talk by the CEO of ShamWow, schmooze at the Rhythmic Gymnastics Club Ice Cream Social, fit in boat races at the Boathouse for section drinks, and drop by the Black, White, Yellow, Pink, and Periwinkle parties…all with a…

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 www.replicaforbest.co.uk. 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

Welcome, Back and Forward

Welcome, Back and Forward Welcome back future business leaders.

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…
