"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

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
