Final thoughts to my Sloanies

A few hundred new friends. It’s been 2 fabulous years. From Sloan student government to Sloan’s Class Gift committee, from piloting an amazing group of first years to TAing a couple of classes, from taking trips together to the Caribbean, South America and Asia, I have learned so many intricate … Read more 

One Semester Left …

5 months till graduation. 5 months till my MBA experience will be all over. While it seems so short, these next months will be filled with classes, projects, trips and parties. I will strive to make the most of my time, and when finished I know I’ll have some fond memories to look back … Read more 

It starts again…

What a summer it has been. As cliched as it may sound, it flew by. Buried in work, and social engagements as well as exploring a new part of the country internships are wonderful. But as with most (all) things in life, there is a beginning and an end.

As I mentioned earlier, quite a few people come to Sloan to change … Read more

A grab bag of (good) emotions…

One and a half months are done.  I could say time flies when you are having fun, but that’s a bit too cliché and doesn’t correctly capture the complexity of my time here. So here are some of the feelings I’ve had since I started.
Exhilarating: From traveling to the Dominican Republic for my … Read more 

And so it begins…

I’m currently “fun-employed” – without a job, enjoying my time before heading off to Sloan MIT. The last few months have been filled with weddings and trips, friends, family and adventures. I backpacked through India and Vietnam, and road tripped half way across America. I landscaped my parents backyard, tallied hundreds of miles … Read more
