That Guy Presents:

What the hell happened? Two days ago I was basking in the warm, warm sunshine of (insert tropical destination here), and now I’m back in the dungeons of HBS eating stale bagels and flicking Reese’s Pieces on that jackass in the worm deck again. It wasn’t all in vain, though. I must confess that my…

Imagine Costa Rica

For those of you thinking of heading south of the border this Spring Break, I urge you to consider the only country in Central America with no army, where friendly local ticos smile and talk to you, and your dollar will be worth more than 300 colones. Costa Rica is a gem in Central America…

NH: Spring Break 2002

On March 25th, Aldrich 9 looked different under the fluorescent lights. While Professor Koehn continued to enlighten us with her usual entrepreneurial spirit and Professor Pill again wowed us with his masterful chalkboard cartography skills, a new, warm cast of sun-kissed skin highlighted by bright-colored clothing, and tired eyes yet new vigor and life filled…

Spring Break-less in Boston?

Okay, okay. So the job market is in the toilet. You’re still trying to snag that elusive summer or full-time offer, so you’ve put your wild Spring Break plans on hold in the pursuit of employment. Or, maybe, financing Spring Break is out of the question as you’ve become so highly levered at Shay’s and…

Golf is to Business as Ham is to Eggs

For the non-golfers out there, “ham-and-egging” is a term used to describe when golf players complement each other well. As in, “That Cher and Sonny – they really ham-and-egg”, or “Brian and Luis, they so ham-and-egged that they took all of Julian’s and Kevin’s money this weekend.” You get my drift. This is my story…

Giddyup Soldier!

I don’t really know what that means, but it sure sounds kind of cool. Hmm, I’m not sure what to write today. I could write about my spring break plans (Italy, ooh), but I’m afraid that providing any additional information might threaten my secret identity. Oh, I know what we could talk about! Let’s talk…

Backgammon Barry

Aside from learning about the remarkable resumes of fellow students, it’s always amazing to hear about other accomplishments that don’t quite fit on MBA classcards. Something you may not have heard is that our fellow Section H’er, Barry Gittleman, is not only a former Naval submarine commander, but he is also the Champion of the…

Strange Behavior

As did the whole RC class, the A-Team began another new course this past week-The Entrepreneurial Manager. Normally this would not merit more than a few words, much less a few sentences, in this column. However, the section’s behavior so far in this class is just way too bizarre and comical not to investigate. Perhaps…

A Status Update for Mom

Dear Mom,I don’t mean to scare you, but I’ve just been through what HBS refers to as “hell week,” in which students interview with dozens of companies. In my case, I will refer to this week as “heck week” because there was just one firm that found my background intriguing. Fortunately for them, I only…

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…

Spring Break in Nicaragua

Whatever happened to Nicaragua? A few years ago the country was front-page news in the New York Times every other week, for all the wrong reasons. Chances are your impression is of a volatile banana republic plagued by natural disasters and rumbling civil war between Marxists and US-backed counter-revolutionaries. Yet the reality is very different,…

Apologies for not getting this “Spring Break” golf report out until this week, but there were some lost film issues that The Coop had to overcome before I could get these shots into print. At any rate, a group of 20 `ND’s and a token entry from NA (Mike Dobbs) headed to Cabo San Lucas…

SPRING BREAK: SAN FRANCISCO

Fisherman’s wharf, Monterey and 17-mile drive, Horseback riding on Half Moon Bay, Sonoma Valley wine country. These are all great things to do and see in San Francisco, but they are NOT the reason I went there on my spring break. Diving off a 3 ft by 6 ft platform held 35 ft in the…

Havoc in Havana

The immigration officials must have found it very ironic that the children of the “Creating Modern Capitalism” generation chose the bastion of communist revolutionary belief for their spring break vacation. Despite the irony of it, roughly 10% of the current September RC cohort set off to Cuba for a week of cigar smoking, mojito sipping,…

Fugakyu—It's Not a Bad Word Anymore

Sushi, sake, sushi, sake…Section C got into a nice easy rhythm Wednesday night as it enjoyed raw delicacies at Fugakyu restaurant in Brookline.

Nor'easter fails to blow Jan classes, September NEG Exam away

It’s an ill wind that blows nobody any good, or so we are told. Two storm systems collided over the Eastern seaboard last week bringing us a bunch of snow, but failing to shake the iron resolve of the HBS faculty and administration. While second-years were happily slashing through sweltering Amazonian rain forests or building…

Exotic Asian Cuisine

Fabulous restaurant–its classic contemporary with subtle Asian influences atmosphere is reason alone to visit–not to mention the so called sexy Satay bar.
