Great Scott! We’re back in the ’80s

Two days after the world celebrated “Back to the Future Day”, Booth’s Graduate Business Council (GBC) threw a time-traveling party of its own – The Booth Arcade ’80s Fall Mixer.

GBC’s “primary objective is to help maximize students’ life experiences while they are at Chicago Booth.”  As the first GBC event of the school year, the arcade mixer did just that.  It was a great way for 1Y and 2Y students to meet, mix, and mingle while sporting ’80s attire, enjoying food and beverages, and jamming out to our favorite throwback tunes.  In its second year, the event has become a favorite among students.  Check it out!

And my time with the historic film studio was incredibly good.
