Halloween

Marcy H. TP'14, November 06, 2012

Halloween in Hanover was great fun.  On Halloween afternoon we got all the kiddos in Sachem Village together for a short parade to show off their costumes followed by a pizza party and, of course, trick-or-treating.  It was really something to see our little neighborhood overrun by all Continue Reading 


Visiting campus as a partner

Claire B. TP14, October 30, 2012

When Will was applying to schools, he of course registered to visit Tuck and participate in an interview while here.  Part of the registration process was identifying whether or not he had a partner, and if so, if his partner (yours truly) would be be coming to campus with Continue Reading 


It Takes a Village

Marcy H. TP'14, October 09, 2012

Many people talk about the tight-knit community here at Tuck in general, and among the families living at Sachem Village. In the two months that we have lived here we have found it to be as warm, welcoming, and open as we had heard. The warm smiles and easy playdates Continue Reading

Blog Guest, October 03, 2012

It is fall in Hanover, which is arguably the most beautiful time of the year.  Leaves are changing, the weather is cooling, and you are able to re-introduce your favorite warm weather gear!  Most people are out hiking, biking, fishing – enjoying all the upper valley has Continue Reading 


Trombones, puppies, and apple crisp

Claire B. TP14, October 02, 2012

Question: what do trombones, puppies, and apple crisp have in common? Answer: My last Sunday involved these wide-ranging activities, and I learned about them all through resources specifically designed to connect Tuck partners. By way of background: I considered myself pretty proficient at facebook... until I moved to Hanover as Continue Reading 


Dancing in the Rain

Juliet H. T'14, September 11, 2012

In the interest of full disclosure, Hanover is limited in shall we say ‘traditional’ forms of entertainment. The Upper Valley lacks the major sports teams, world-class museums, and famous restaurants that characterize the cities from which many of us hail. And for this, I could not be more Continue Reading 


First year over! (Best year of my life)

Justin R T'13, May 27, 2012

Wow. I can’t believe my first year is over. Fall A and B, Winter and Spring Terms. All over. What an experience it’s been. It was pretty difficult zeroing in on a particular topic to write about for this post because so much has happened in Continue Reading 


And… it’s over

Ken F. T'12, May 22, 2012

My first class at Tuck was the Yellowtail case in AGM. My study group had spent literally hours preparing it - reading, analyzing, calculating, debating - and we were relatively efficient. Some groups went as far as to check flight schedules between cities mentioned in the case, to figure out Continue Reading

Luis G - T'13, May 16, 2012

The dividend discount model is one of the valuation techniques I learned in Financial Statement Interpretation and Analysis, a class that prepares students to effectively analyze and interpret financial statements.  Basically, the dividend discount model says that the value of a company is worth the discounted sum of all Continue Reading 


Freedom Tower

Ken F. T'12, May 07, 2012

There were some dark, dark days. My first memory of the whole thing is lying flat on my back on the burnt grass of a soccer field, looking down my body and seeing my knee cap on the side of my calf, and my lower leg at a horrific, unnatural Continue Reading 


The Beginning of the End

Ken F. T'12, May 04, 2012

It's real. It's actually happening. We T'12s are going to have to graduate and re-enter the real world. Soon. If you had asked me before spring break when I'd like to start work, I would have said, "tomorrow". Not that I wasn't having a great Continue Reading

The Munger Games

Ken F. T'12, April 30, 2012

All stereotypes exist for a reason. All generalizations are wrong. Whatever your view, top MBA schools have stereotypes. The eight minute video below was produced recently by our friends at Columbia Business School and does a very entertaining job of reviving some old stereotypes. It has been spreading like wildfire Continue Reading
