It is truly phenomenal to see so many people dedicate their time and money to help their friends – now that fundraising week is finally here, the type of donations and support I’ve seen from my peers as a cohort rep have really amazed me. In the spirit of show and not tell, I bring you the stories of my classmates from different perspectives.
There’s nothing like being back in school. I’m not being facetious! The opportunity to learn is all around you: during any given lunch period, you can stumble in on a famous business leader (and free food) if you find the right lecture hall. Allow me to illustrate. A few weeks ago, when there was a lull in recruiting events and study sessions, I found myself in the Isaacson Classroom (Room 4210) at a lecture on solar energy, social entrepreneurship, and strategies for maximizing the impact of your life’s work. Munching on my brie, apple, and herb-y sandwich concoction, I could hardly contain my excitement.
