Business school can be stressful. It ain’t always easy juggling group projects, recruiting, studying and socializing. Sometimes the best way to relax is to go home, kick up your feet, and spend some quality time with the one friend that will never let you down… your pet.
Here are some of the pets at Booth that keep our whole community smiling!
Growing up in the suburbs of Chicago, rooting for the
Chicago Bulls was a given. I never thought we’d lose with Michael and Scottie

I knew instantly, that this had to be a part of my Booth experience!

journey. Read on to see the timeline of my first year at Booth and check back
to catch a glimpse at my second year as well.

On the second floor of Harper Center, you’ll find the Career Services Interview Suite, full of seemingly endless, alphabetically ordered interview rooms most of us know really well. I’ve had lots of big moments here over the last few years.
