Snow!

Marcy H. TP'14, November 30, 2012

We got our first real snowfall last night-- light flurries overnight that accumulated to just an inch or two of snow.  Ok, perhaps not that impressive, but it was just enough to cover everything with a light blanket of white and make everything look very pretty.  The children Continue Reading 


CDO Insights: Recruiting support for off-campus recruiting and for international students

Alice L. – T’14, November 29, 2012

One-third of our class is international and the Career Development Office (CDO) provides additional support for these students throughout the recruiting process:     Bidding: 50% of the on-campus interview slots are selected by the recruiters. The additional 50% are open for anyone to bid using a points system. This democratizes the Continue Reading 


Shopping in the area

Claire B. TP14, November 26, 2012

"The nearest Target is an hour away, and the nearest Bed Bath and Beyond is an hour and fifteen minutes!!" How ever is one supposed to move into a new place without these two staples??  I remember hearing those distances and thinking our move to Tuck would be a Continue Reading 


Career reflections and CDO insights

Alice L. – T’14, November 22, 2012

I am back in LA for the Thanksgiving holiday and it’s finally given me a chance to take a step back from the whirlwind that is business school. On my way home, I stopped by Boston and met up with my old boss (also a Tuckie). He loved Continue Reading 


(Part) of what makes Tuck great: Tripod Hockey

Dennis D. - T'14, November 21, 2012

I grew up in Florida.  My idea of ice is a snow-cone.  Despite a preview of cold weather during my college days, I have spent the last six years in Los Angeles.  When it comes to ice-skating, I'm somewhere between "Novice" and "Ouch! That had to Continue Reading 


Partner groups, clubs, and activities

Claire B. TP14, November 19, 2012

Tuckies are pretty awesome, but let's be honest... so are Tuck Partners (TPs).   They continue to impress me in so many different ways--too many to delve into in a single post.  For now, I thought I'd post a broad overview of the numerous and diverse Continue Reading 


Frosty

Marcy H. TP'14, November 18, 2012

The temperatures are dropping.  We had our first "snow" a week or two ago-- it was too warm to stick, but it was still pretty magical to watch the little white snowflakes swirling through the air (at least to this winter-weather novice).  However, while it's been too Continue Reading 


Kids @ Tuck

Dennis D. - T'14, November 17, 2012

Tuck can be something different to every student; it can provide the launchpad to switch careers, the skills to progress up the corporate ladder, or the time to build your network and launch your own business. It is what you make it. As a parent, though, the academic and recruiting Continue Reading 


Recruiting off campus

Dennis D. - T'14, November 16, 2012

There are two primary ways which you can source your summer internship and full-time job: (i) on-campus, with large firms coming to campus for interviews (think investment banks, global companies, consulting), and (ii) off-campus, where you determine the job you want and network your way into it. The main advantage Continue Reading 


Tripod Hockey: not just for students!

Claire B. TP14, November 14, 2012

I think it's accurate to say that most of us had never played ice hockey before Tuck, yet it's a huge part of the culture here.  How can that be?  Well, you don't have to know how to play hockey--or even how to skate--to get Continue Reading 


Living in Hanover: Indoor Play (or, keeping the kiddoes busy when it’s too cold to play outside)

Marcy H. TP'14, November 13, 2012

The weather has held up well enough so far this year (it was sunny and in the 60's yesterday!) so we've been enjoying lots of outdoor play while it's been so nice. However, as the days grow colder and daylight becomes more scarce we'll need to find Continue Reading 


Working in the Upper Valley

Claire B. TP14, November 11, 2012

Many partners who decide to relocate to the Hanover area while their student is enrolled at Tuck are concerned with finding work in the Upper Valley.  <-- That is an example of a generalization.  Read on, but please bear this in mind:   Everyone comes to Tuck Continue Reading 


What Does 24/7 Learning Mean?

Sumeeta K. - T'14, November 09, 2012

Tuck is such an amazing place for so many reasons.  One of the things that stands out to me when I think about what sets it apart, is the 24/7 learning environment that being in Hanover fosters. In Tuck terms, 24/7 learning means that the potential for my knowledge base to Continue Reading 


Supply Chain Field Trip!

Laura T'13, November 09, 2012

A few weeks ago, my Supply Chain class went to on a field tip to LLBean and Red Hook.  Dean Johnson, the professor, is an enthusiastic teacher who is really excited by supply chain and logistical details.  We went to Maine first, to explore the LLBean shipping and Continue Reading 


Rosi Kerr Small Group Lunch

Laura T'13, November 07, 2012

One thing that clubs do is bring speakers on campus to discuss current events, initiatives, or goals.  The Net Impact Club, a club focused on social impact activities, businesses, and organizations, recently brought Rosi Kerr, the Director of Sustainability at Dartmouth, to campus to have a lunch with a Continue Reading
