Let the Games Begin!

The 2003 Section Olympics will take place on April 23rd around the HBS Campus, and will enable Sections to demonstrate their prowess in various endeavors, including physical, scholastic, and creative competitions. In addition, the Olympics will provide the entire cohort with an opportunity to develop cohesion and display pride in HBS as a whole. As…

OJ Goes Skiing

I have a fiduciary responsibility to my section. Therefore when my previous article recounting the continuing wild exploits of OJ hit an editorial roadblock and was denied publication in the Harbus, I felt it my duty to seek the views of my entire section. Had I been irresponsible and na‹ve in my writing ? Had…

On the Middle East Conflict: Loyalty vs. Facts

Affiliation and group loyalty tend to shape a person’s perspective of the world. Two people with opposing views will have very different subjective readings of the same facts. Sometimes it’s unconscious because people are selective in both the comprehension and retention of information, but other times it is perhaps less so. The Middle East conflict…

Be the Ball

A lesson to all you future business leaders: one should always be careful what one dismisses in print, because one never knows when such commentary will come back to bite them in the ample behind. Demonstrating all the marketing savvy and market prescience of Xerox when they dumped the graphical interface PC, so it was…

HBS Starts UNstudying

A few weeks ago some HBS students and faculty did a great thing-they got together over lunch and had an organized, thoughtful conversation about Enron. The conversation was the first in a series of what are being called “UNstudy Groups.” (See below for information on how to join the next one.) Now, of course, HBS…

The Debate Continues

Hi Gad, Just wanted to respond to your letter to the Editor in today’s paper. I also had some concerns with John Shepherd’s piece in the Harbus last week (which I have in part communicated to him) and, like you, was concerned about some of the conclusions he drew. Unfortunately in my eyes, you’re the…

Raw & Spicy and Power Has Its Privileges

Raw & SpicyBy Kevin Dallas I am not, nor I have I ever been, associated with the graduate schools of Harvard. Goldie brought me in as a ringer because of a deficiency in her database. Nick was, put simply, the only homosexual in the match-making database. At Harvard? Really, people! Therefore, ours was not the…

BostonTrek 2002

This is the second in a series of articles profiling companies that are participating in BostonTrek 2002. With each new installment, it becomes more and more clear that there are still many great high tech jobs in the Boston area.

The title above has nothing to do with my introduction, but I couldn’t come up with a title that was both relevant and catchy, so I decided to dump the relevant part. Let’s just move on to the Intraview of the week. Although this week’s couple doesn’t provide singing waiters for your amusement, they do…

Taking a Pass… And Living To Tell

As it happens, I was reading the Harbus yesterday. (Actually, it didn’t just happen – I was told to read it because there was an article on cold calls that mentioned me. I was listed in the Harbus and, like Steve Martin in The Jerk, when the telephone book arrives with his name, I was…

Dow Jones VP Tells The Journal's 9/11 Tale

Among the businesses that evacuated their Lower Manhattan offices on September 11 was The Wall Street Journal.

Memoirs from the Year 2013

I am currently the general manager of the hybrid/electric car division at General Motors. I enjoyed my time at Procter & Gamble pushing toothpaste around the world. I then took that marketing experience to GM, and eventually moved from marketing to general management. I have a political agenda: I think if the US depended less…

Section NI Continues to Dazzle

After a week of hibernation, I am forced to write something on Section I, now that we have the editor-in-chief of the Harbus also from the Club of I. The announcement of the candidacy of Nick Will as a leader and conscience keeper of the student voice in the HBS campus took Section I by…

New Faces in Gallatin Basement

The board of directors of the Harbus News Corporation elected its new officers for the calendar year 2002 on December 3. After intense deliberations, the board voted in Susan Kim (NC) as Publisher, and Nick Will (NI) as Editor-in-Chief. Susan (Harvard College ’96) has a background in management consulting and brand marketing, and loves the…

They Said What? Does the Dew

Many of the humorous anecdotes heard around HBS this past week were made by new arrivals to the Boston area and revolved around the unpredictable and inconsistent weather of late, but were not appropriate for the Harbus reading audience and the small children who might pick up a discarded copy around campus. All members of…

Jack Welch: Unplugged

What's Hot This Week

Ron Peracchio, the acting director of MBA Career Services, took a break from the recruiter outreach and CareerLink management activities that have been consuming his time lately to address the HBS Student Association’s Wednesday meeting last week. Although scheduled to speak largely about the office’s new initiatives for expanding international job opportunities (see last week’s…

The Intraview:

What is the Intraview and why should you care? For the uninitiated, the Intraview is a bizarre Harbus concept in which a professional matchmaker scours the campus for the perfect couple, sends them off on an evening of their dreams, and lets the entire Harbus-reading student body learn about the results. Unfortunately, the Harbus’s ad…

Being Depressed at HBS

(Editor’s Note: This article first appeared in the Harbus a few years ago. We are reprinting it this month because October is National Depression Screening Month. Due to the sensitive nature of this article, the Harbus has allowed the author to remain anonymous. Pat Light, Director of MBA Program Support Services, has vouched for the…

A Letter to James Burke

September 11, 2001-Last weekend, when I first thought about submitting my letter to the Harbus, I was conflicted because it’s so personal to me, I’m not ready to face any judgments about it, I’m not thrilled with my writing, and I tend to be especially self-conscious about being “cheesy.” Then today after the attacks in…

ACRONYMS:

Since I got here, I have been more flustered and confused over the acronyms that are used here than over the cases. At the risk of sounding stupid, I will mention a few that I’ve struggled with thus far: I thought “EC” meant “Extra Curricular”-didn’t know how it was used…thought maybe you take your RC…

So Your're a Sports Buff- You've Come to the Right Place

Disclaimer-OK, I admit it – this article is a rerun from the January 15 Harbus-no original content whatsoever. I think Carl Kester called it self-plagiarism in his address to the EC the other day. I blame this evidence of laziness on my new favorite scapegoat-the my HBS portal. You see, had I figured out in…

An Introduction to the Harbus Humor Section

This week’s Harbus isn’t funny like usual, and it doesn’t include reports from the Section Reps on the events in their respective rooms in Aldrich. For that we apologize.

Finally, we have definitive proof that at least one person somewhere in the world actually reads The Harbus!
