Superbowl?! Surely You Can’t Get More Than a Strike!!

Well, wasn’t that all low key? If there’s one thing you guys do well it’s restraint and modesty at sporting events. I particularly like how you don’t have giant jets of flame shooting 50 feet into the sky as the teams come onto the field through smoke and paper and god knows what. Oh and…

Cold Call with Stefan Vitorovic (NE)

Things are off to a good start as Cold Call heads to Harvard Square’s Tasty Burger to sit down with Stefan Vitorovic. DC: Stefan, what are you eating? SV: I’m eating a bacon turkey burger with guacamole, a shout out to Cali. Avocados aren’t nearly as good in New England as in California. DC: Why?…

Cold Call with Bryan Mezue (OI)

KL: First things first.  Where are you from? BM: I was born in a middle-sized South-East Nigerian city of Enugu, and spent my first 11 years of life there. After that I’ve moved around a lot with family and then later with my job. I’ve lived for significant portions of my life in Doha, London, Beijing, and now Boston….

Play ‘Fairytale of New York’! Christmas is back!

It’s back. It is. It’s unbelievable isn’t it? As soon as the tree comes down, the wreath’s off the door, the world warms up a bit in the Spring and BOOM, it hits you right in the mush. No, not a new hockey season (what is up with that, by the way?), but Christmas. Or…

The Wrong Kind of Flakes: Tardiness at HBS

There’s a creeping problem at HBS. It’s ugly. It’s annoying. It’s viral. It’s flakiness. We’ve all seen it. The friend who rolls up to a meeting 10 minutes late, coffee in hand. The sectionmate who shoots out a text just before an event saying “Can’t make it anymore”. Or the club member who doesn’t show…

Ask The Harbuster

Life at HBS, like Lindsay Lohan in 2004 or 2012, can be difficult, volatile and totally uninsurable. But, unlike Lindsay Lohan then and now, life at HBS is something we at The Harbus can help you with. Are you anxious about academics, confused about campus, skeptical about socializing, or adamant about alliteration? Our resident Harbuster,…

Giving Voice to Values

What’s all this talk about vulnerability and openness? Aren’t we supposed to be tough HBS students who know exactly what we’re doing with our lives? As ECs and RCs alike know, the school is making a concerted effort, through LEAD, FIELD, and other means, to remind its charges that self-reflection and interdependence are good things….

From FIELD 3 Concept to Kickstarter Campaign

Most of us have iPads, but most of us don’t  have kids. That’s what I shared with Phyl Georgiou, the co-founder of Tiggly, who explained why I, and any adult that knows a toddler, could find Tiggly’s iPad toddler-toy useful. We all know a two-year old, right? In my case, I know plenty, so I…

Keep it Moving: Fitness Tips from Shad

With vacations, weekend trips, case studies to read, meetings to attend, sick days, and social obligations, being a student at HBS does not lend itself to consistency or routine. More often than not, the rigors of student life get in the way of the habits leading to a healthy lifestyle. Some get overwhelmed by the…

Presidential Election 2012: Indian Perspective

Back in India, my peers and I would religiously wake up at 6:00 am during each US election cycle to watch the presidential and vice-presidential debates live on CNN. For long, the US has been a shining beacon of what a successful democracy could do for its populace and the model which people around the world…

Cold Call with Claire Friedman (NE)

Cold calls. Your professors love them. You fear them. Your ed rep crushes them. We think it’s about time that this HBS staple gets the rebranding it deserves.

Muslims Celebrate Eid-ul-Adha, the ‘Festival of Sacrifice’

Today, Muslims at HBS and around the world will celebrate the festival of ‘Eid-ul-Adha’. The Arabic word ‘Eid’ means festival or feast, while the word ‘Adha’ translates to sacrifice. Consequently, ‘Eid-ul-Adha’ is also known as the ‘festival of sacrifice’. Eid-ul-Adha is one of the two major holy days in Islam. It is observed after ‘Hajj’,…

Oh Priscilla, Priscilla: A Reconsideration of Priscilla Ball

In front of 90 people, I described a time at work when I disagreed strongly about something, yet did not speak up. In true case-method fashion, my LEAD professor pressed, “why didn’t you speak up?” I feared marginalization. I still fear marginalization. But I have a greater fear. A thought experiment: it’s the annual meeting…

2012 Presidential Election: Chinese Perspective

As an international student from China, this is the first time I have watched a US presidential election campaign live as it unfolds.

Confessions of an RC

I’ve finally started this nutty experience known as RC year and thus far I’ve laughed, cried, drank far too many cocktails, worn too many themed outfits, and smiled more than I have in a long time. I’ve had highs, lows, and everything in between. And we’re one month in – yep, one month. If my…
