One aspect of the Booth experience that I value the most is that as students, we have numerous outlets to express ourselves creatively. One such event that showcases Booth’s musical talent is the Battle of the Bands, where students from both Booth and Kellogg head to Metro (a popular music venue here in Chicago), for a night of watching their classmates perform and rock out. In this week’s TBE blog post, Cory Burns, a second-year student and drummer for Hobo Goat Chic, gives us a glimpse into what it’s like to be a literal rockstar at Booth. If you’d like to see more photos from Battle of the Bands, Photobooth (a photography oriented student organization) has a great Flickr set, which you can find here.

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
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
