Burden auditorium was buzzing just after class on Tuesday, April 13 as the RCs geared up for a day of Section Olympic contests. Though Section B would eventually take home the gold, it certainly didn’t look that way at the start.

Unfortunately for the other nine sections, he was right. Even the poor weather could not rain on the competitive spirits of all the Type A’s at HBS. “Put… Continue reading Bad Weather Can't Keep the Class of 2007 Down
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.

Admit Weekend struck a chord with a lot of us – it reminded us of the fact that barely a year ago, we stood in their shoes, all starry-eyed, uptight and cautious, excited to be a new admit to the finest business institution in the world.

When I got my admission into HBS, my biggest worry was how I would fit in with the rest of the student body. I dreaded going to class everyday with people who believed they were masters of the universe and the rest of the world was supposed to worship the ground they walked on. I… Continue reading Absolut-ly Fabulous!
If you missed it, you really missed it.

HBS is full of great traditions. Whether it’s Holidazzle or the Chili Cook-off or three dudes from Section I asking overly-contrived questions of former Cabinet members in Burden, tradition is what makes HBS the wonderful place that it is. One tradition that has been growing in popularity in recent years is the Section Olympics. For… Continue reading Section Olympics Preview from That Guy

Spring is in the air. The trees on Spangler lawn are blooming, the birds are chirping, and the winter coats are tucked away. So what’s the problem? One word: cases. I have to say, I really didn’t mind reading cases this year. For the most part, they were interesting, if for no other reason than… Continue reading Spring Is In The Air
