HBS Hosts First-Ever Ivy League Kabaddi Tournament

Back in August it would have been a fair bet that, outside of SABA, not one HBS student would have had the slightest clue about the Indian sport of Kabaddi.

Pearls Before Wine

Neurotic November

November is not for the wimpy, reserved and chicken-hearted RC. November at HBS translates into notorious section retreats, increased absenteeism in class, more section loving (or lusting depending on which section you are in), over exposure to McKinsey/Bain/BCG and over ingestion of those spring rolls at Noir Bar. November is a month of change-trees undress,…
