On July 25th, the 52 members of the Yale School of Management Class of 2016 met each other to officially begin orientation and “boot camp.” Indeed, we are a “class of firsts” (as my classmate Marc Peterman so well-articulated in his recent blog post). By the last day of “boot camp” on August 8, the class coalesced, guards came down, and new friendships were formed. We would return to Evans Hall for class every 14 days for the next 21 months.

And why?

Since the start of our program in late July, time has flown by and the Class of 2016 is already a month and a half into this colossal endeavor that we’ve collectively undertaken.  After our 2 week in-house residency experience – also aptly called boot camp – we returned back to our homes in Baton Rouge and Sao Paulo and Chicago, to our awaiting families, and to about 5,000 unread work emails.

As the class of 2014 integrates back into society post MBA, many of our classmates continue to impress in new capacities. As a class, we set and achieved many lofty goals. Yet, one of the final goals we set forth was to fundraise in parallel with a charity providing opportunities for children with life threatening illnesses.

On the last and perhaps most beautiful Friday evening in July, the SOM faculty welcomed the Class of 2016 to Evans Hall for an open-air cocktail reception.  As 52 new Yalies exchanged pleasantries on Beinecke terrace, it became very clear that the Admissions staff deserved the first toast.  Faculty and students alike commented on an accomplished, diverse, and extraordinarily large class.
