Golden Gargoyles: a crazier, glitzier version of the Golden Globes!

Golden Gargoyles is one outlet at Booth that allows students to express themselves creatively. Whether it’s acting, directing, screen-writing, or dancing, Golden Gargoyles gives everyone the opportunity to showcase their talents and contribute to a fun event that signifies the official end of LEAD. In this week’s TBE post, first-year student Ying Liu recounts all of the highlights of the evening and what it was like to star in her cohort’s video. For photos of the event, check out Photobooth’s Flickr album.

This will of course just be one specific example about a single group, but I can assure everyone that each student group has comparable functions and engagement. Continue reading Community at Booth

Fun Times at Booth

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!

When I started this blog, the intent was to relay the student life while at Booth. Most know Booth is a world-class academic institution but in reality, this is only part of what makes Booth such an amazing place. Although less discussed, the network and friendships you build are just as important as the academic preparation and is also responsible for making your two years at business school one incredibly enjoyable time. This week, I want to get back to the root intention of this blog and talk a little bit about the social life while at Booth. Continue reading Fun Times at Booth
