The J-Nation Squad defeats OF for intramural football championship title. It is a fact of HBS intramural life that RC sections do not win championships. They are almost always shunted aside by their own inexperience, overwhelmed by the gamesmanship of the ECs or undone by the sheer number of participants that unwary captains invite to… Continue reading Intramural Wire: NJ Takes Home Flag Football Crown

Less Talky, More Drinky: A Gentleman's Guide to Creative Beverage Consumption

A little over a week after arriving in Boston I found myself at a keg party in the backyard of a rundown Cambridge house. Around me, mid-twenty year olds pounded beers with a gusto approaching that of freshmen at UC Santa Barbara. But they didn’t just their pound beers; they also played games with them,… Continue reading Less Talky, More Drinky: A Gentleman's Guide to Creative Beverage Consumption

I will be the first to admit it, I dropped the ball. EC’s will remember what I am talking about. Last April on Section Olympics day, to the chants of various re-written British football songs, each RC section paraded around in new, and sometimes cool looking section t-shirts. Witness Hot-E, G-Love, and I heart NI.… Continue reading Wanted:

Section Olympics 2003:

If you missed it, you really missed it. Section Olympics was a resounding success as hundreds of RCs spent a sunny Tuesday afternoon running, jumping, tripping, throwing, screaming, vomiting, eating and everything besides. This being HBS, it was sometimes a little heated, but sport and the section bonding was ultimately the winner. The record will… Continue reading Section Olympics 2003:

NJ beats NF 8-0

Recruiting Snafus: What Not to Say to a Recruiter

So, which did you prefer – the lifeless interrogation rooms at Chase (easy escape) or making idle conversation in “reception” rooms at the Doubletree (comfy internment)? Either way, it is what happened during the interviews which results in the most giggles all up and down the hallways of Aldrich. During our heady week of selling… Continue reading Recruiting Snafus: What Not to Say to a Recruiter

Special K Keeps it Special

It looked like a tough game for Special K. Some of its best players were on reserve. Owen the forward was injured and Doren and Olya, the two goalkeepers were also unable to play. Adding to the thin lines, Travis, NK’s other forward, got injured in the first minutes. NJ jumped onto the field with… Continue reading Special K Keeps it Special

NJ goes skiing

If I got a penny for every time someone asked me if NJ had really been skiing, I would probably have at least three cents by now. And as I predicted, the brutal course of section love took its toll in the spring break. One day it was there, and the next day it was… Continue reading NJ goes skiing

Pine Chen has complained that contrary to the implications of the last article entitled “New J Goes Skiing (Sex)”, there was in fact no mention of sex in the article.

New J Goes Skiing (Sex)

Thank you to Sisto Merolla for sharing with us his simplistic Italian approach for capturing reader attention. Last week I discovered that Joshua Margolis, our LEAD professor, and Bjorn Jorgensen, our FRC professor, read my simple NJ contributions to the Harbus. Now, the obvious tactic here would be for me to write a sniveling, greasy,… Continue reading New J Goes Skiing (Sex)
