The truly awesome Shwedagon Pagoda in downtown Rangoon, and our first sunset in Burma.
I'm writing this post from the gate at Rangoon airport in Burma, (officially known as Myanmar). I've just spent the most wonderful 10 days touring and trekking the newly-opened country with 6 of my classmates, and am about to fly to Tokyo to begin my International Experience (IE). Wait. Let me back up just a little bit.Read More
Hey There! It's been a while, but I've stored up a lot of great stuff for you. Everything in this post is a reflection of the longstanding tradition at Yale SOM of taking our jobs and experiences seriously, but definitely not taking ourselves too seriously. First off, here's a picture of my house* that my friend Sarah took yesterday morning. It may look like a pretty standard winter snow day, but keep in mind that there's a 30" porch underneath that snow.Read More
Back at the beginning of the month, I participated in what was possibly the best recruiting event ever. SY/Partners, a design and innovation consulting firm focused on transforming corporate cultures, came to the TEAL Room to host a full-day workshop for 30 members of the SOM communityRead More
Clockwise from top: Dennis '14, Meg '14, Whitney '14, and Emily '14 sitting in front of Van Windermere Estates on the first day of Fall 1. Photo Michael Chen '14. Remember when I wrote about the cohort system at SOM? Well, this year we’ve inaugurated the Cohort Cup competition, where the four cohorts in both years compete for glory and EPP’s (Eminent and Purposeful Points). This is a video of the dizzybat race held in Caulkins Courtyard last week, and my friend Brendan (SOM/FES '15) was forward-thinking enough to document this for posterity. Naturally, Gold took home the prize, (we’re on the far end, led by flamenco god Pedro, in the helmet), though it was a very close race! GO GOLD.Read More
Happy early Thanksgiving, everyone! I wish you all the best over the holiday, and hope that it is restorative, happy, and delicious.
Since we have no class this week, and I am on a plane to visit my family in San Jose, I figured I’d take some time to update you on some of the goings-on at SOM over the last few weeks. And although we’ve had a pretty academically intensive period, I’m going to focus on the fun stuff.Read More
The title of my inaugural post is 'Go Where the Journey Takes You,' which is a pretty good philosophy for any business school students who may have changed their minds 14 or 15 times about what they want to do with their lives once they get to school. (Not that we know anyone like that. Certainly not.) This past weekend, my journey took me to Boston for Reaching Out MBA, the annual conference for LGBT MBAs and their allies.Read More
