Last month, I attended the 36th Annual Fogel Dinner, along with scores of students, alumni, and staff from across the Chicago Booth community. Named in honor of the professor and Nobel laureate Robert Fogel, the Fogel dinner has become a time-honored tradition and a symbol of diversity and inclusion at Booth. Professor Fogel was an advocate for building community at the University of Chicago, especially for the under-represented and marginalized groups, such as African Americans.
Congratulations to everyone in the Class of 2018! We’re excited to be part of an outstanding class of Boothies who will be graduating tomorrow and going out into the world to make our mark. Our time at Booth has been amazing, full of new experiences and successes — from Nobel Prize winning faculty to our very own TBE teammate winning the Social New Venture Challenge!
Speaking of Nobel laureate professors, Richard Thaler will be our commencement speaker this year. We look forward to celebrating this major achievement with such an accomplished yet humble pillar of the Chicago Booth community. And we couldn’t be more proud to call ourselves the newest members of the Chicago Booth alumni network.
Ever wonder which Booth classes you’d enjoy the most? Well, they say the professor makes the class so why not find out which Nobel you have the most in common with. Take this quiz to see who is your Chicago Booth Nobel Spirit Professor!
