Meet the New Team

Another June passes, and another Chicago Booth graduating class walks out the door and on to their next great adventure.

While we’re sad to see them go, we are also thrilled to accept our roles as wise second years and welcome a new set of fresh-faced students to the Harper Center this fall. Here at The Booth Experience, it’s our job to provide insight, commentary, and anecdotes to help those ramping up or those getting started in the process to understand just what it means to call Booth home.

Booth’s Pay-it-forward Culture

Collaboration is a cornerstone of Chicago Booth’s pay-it-forward culture. First year students receive help from second year students even before class officially starts. One example is during Random Walks, when second years lead one-week trips to destinations around the world, and start showing first years what Booth is all about. A few weeks later on campus, second years facilitate LEAD, become career advisors, and run the many different social and professional clubs.

Booth for the Holidays

This past November and December, Boothies celebrated the winter holidays together, all over the world – 400 students crashed Aspen for a week for our annual Ski Trip, hundreds went on career treks from San Francisco to Dubai, and endless more celebrated classmates’ weddings, spent time with family, or traveled to new cities. We asked all of our amazing classmates to share their holiday photos that captured their favorite aspects of the Booth community—its interconnectedness, its creativity, its diversity, its adventurousness, and every other event or observation that inspires us all to get in the Booth spirit! Check out our favorites…

Or even how much a Playboy Playmate of the Month gets paid?

If so, Boothies in the South Loop would love to have you on our trivia team! And if you want to guess (don’t cheat!), post in the comments and in a couple weeks I’ll let you know if you’re right!

Chicago Booth: Where Everyone Knows Your Name (And If They Don’t, They Will), Part II

As a Part 2 to Suzi’s post earlier this week, I thought it would be helpful to the introverts amongst us (myself included) to read about all the different ways that the Booth community officially facilitates community. Specifically, getting to know the clubs and teams that a student can join and meet people who share the same interests, hobbies and love for Pitch Perfect. (Ok, maybe the last is just me.)
