One of the aspects of Booth that I absolutely love is the fun rivalry we have with that other MBA program to the North, Kellogg. It was something I did not expect coming into Booth at all (I assumed rivalries ended with college football!) but also something that I find myself getting super excited and competitive about every time. Almost twice a quarter there is some Booth v. Kellogg event, from case competitions to conferences, to soccer, rugby, and flag football, all the way to my personal favorite, BATTLE OF THE BANDS!

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.
