Leslie Koehn and Tunde Bamigboye are first year students at Booth who went on the 2014 Guatemala Random Walk trip. Random Walks provide Chicago Booth students with an opportunity to meet and bond with their future classmates before the rigors of the MBA program begin. I spoke with them to learn more about their experiences, including what it was like to roast marshmallows on top of a volcano.
EM: Were you nervous before the trip?
Leslie – To be honest, yes I was a little nervous. Going on a trip with a bunch of people you have never met can be intimidating and a little nerve racking but I was also excited for the new experience.
Tunde – No, not really. In my pre-Booth research, the common strain in the Booth experiences of people I had spoken to was how fantastic the RW trip was for them and how it was a time in which they all made life-long friends. A high bar for sure, but one I was excited for.
