Boothies tend to travel quite a bit. Between long weekend trips to Cuba or Paris, Spring Break in Israel (aptly named BoothRight), Ski Trips to Canada and Colorado, Random Walks to Brazil, Japan, Costa Rica, Peru, Russia, South Africa…. and pretty much everywhere else, Boothies are a globally adventurous and travel-hungry crew!
But for some who want a truly immersive global experience, there is the ultimate Booth travel opportunity – study abroad!

I lived for 2 years with an MBA student as a roommate before I came to Booth. At the time, I couldn’t understand why she was always so busy. She also kept traveling from coast to coast at times, and when I asked her why she would say “recruiting.” But honestly, I never fully appreciated how action-packed life can be during recruiting season till I came to Booth myself. So for the uninitiated, here’s a peek into my life last Thursday thru Saturday as I traveled for interviews, while balancing academics and my extra-curricular leadership responsibilities.

For those who are not familiar, Random Walk is the deliciously nerdy name that Booth uses for our pre-orientation travel bonding experience. Groups of 10-12 incoming first years are led by 4 second years in a week-long trip to a foreign country. Through Random Walk, I’ve had the experience of snowboarding down the Andes in Chile and rappelling down a waterfall in Panama. Not only did I experience new ways to descend mountains, but I also developed a tight-knit network of friends who helped me navigate the intimidating transition of starting at a new school. In fact, I felt so close with my first year trip-mates that we decided to go on Random Walk again this year as the leaders of RW Panama. I couldn’t imagine my Booth Experience without Random Walk, and it seems like this year’s first years feel the same way:

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…

Oh Booth winter break, how I’ve missed you! Last year, winter break was the glorious reward after a busy first quarter balancing school and summer internship recruiting. But this year as a 2nd year student, it’s a bittersweet reminder that the Booth experience passes by all too quickly and we’re just two short quarters away from graduation. So this past December, Bayasaa Enkhbaatar (a fellow 2nd year Booth student, dear friend, and partner in crime) and I decided to give in to our wanderlust and embark on a two week adventure together to hike Patagonia and make the most of this break.
