One of the highlights of every week, is getting the chance to attend 2Y Marwa Darkhabani’s International Movie Nights. Marwa has been screening movies weekly since her first year at Booth and each screening asks an international Boothie to select a film and then moderate a conversation and answer questions about it.Continue reading International Movie Night Gets Boothies Talking
As an Admissions Fellow, I am often asked about my experience at Booth. A common question I get is, “What’s surprised you most?” So, I wanted to share my biggest pleasant surprises and, hopefully in the process, shed some light on what attending this school has meant to me.Continue reading What Surprised Me About Booth
Back in October, we all received emails about Booth’s new Fresh Air Fund. I wasn’t sure what to expect: a fund dedicated to the environment? A reference to NPR’s podcast? No. The Fresh Air Fund is an effort by Booth to nudge us away from Harper and into our larger UChicago surroundings. As part of this, we have been given $60 in credit to dine, snack, and shop at campus cafes, markets, and dining halls. I tried out a few this quarter and walked away pleasantly surprised and eager to go back. Here are my top picks!
Chicago Booth has always had a strong reputation for finance and economics (8 Nobel Prizes, but who’s counting?). Much has been said about its offerings in those disciplines so I’ll let Booth’s reputation speak for itself. What I really want to do is shed light on what it means to study marketing at Booth. I want to share why I decided to come to Booth to pursue marketing and why I believe Booth is a fantastic marketing school, particularly in these data-driven times.
Here are 4 reasons I chose Booth for a career in marketing.
Last weekend I had the great fortune of joining an unofficial trek to Dallas (yes, treks do happen during the school year!), led by 2Y Will Fischer who’s from Texas. The best part of the trip: it was organized by a local who showed us his city and explained all the cultural nuances of his hometown. The second best part: it was an opportunity to experience Dallas with a group of international Boothies who hailed from Lebanon, India, Syria, and England. We enjoyed some fascinating discussions and reveled in the uniqueness, authenticity, and hospitality of our fellow Texans.
